Welcome to the SETAC Europe Students Affinity Group, which is led by the SETAC Europe Student Advisory Council (SAC).
About the SETAC Europe Student Advisory Council
Since 2007 the SETAC Europe Student Advisory Council (SAC) represents the Students’ voice of and within SETAC and, therein, 25 % of the membership within SETAC governance and decision-making. Our main responsibilities include advising the SETAC Europe Council (SEC) on student and early career interests and, vice versa, feedbacking relevant issues identified by the SEC back to the membership. Most importantly, we work on identifying the essential needs of students and early career scientists and work closely together with other councils to resolve these needs on the SETAC governance level. Last but not least, we see it as our responsibility to build the foundation to provide a step for young scientists into SETAC’s broad network, to enable young environmental scientists to connect and start building their own network around the globe. Organising the Young Environmental Scientists Meeting, aka YES-Meeting, is the major outcome of this mission, next to a variety of activities organised by the SAC at SETAC annual meetings and throughout the year. We believe that these events and especially the YES meeting will be an unforgettable experience for all of you attendees, where you will meet new friends, take the first steps toward or expand your international scientific network and, finally, connect to future colleagues accompanying your early scientific career.
