JURE 2020 Conference

July 13th - 17th 2020

JURE organises annual (pre-) conferences that offer the possibility to meet fellow junior researchers from all over Europe, to exchange ideas and experiences with junior and senior researchers and to develop research skills in an international context. JURE provides an environment where juniors can socialise and participate in a scientific community.

It is with heavy heart that, due to the ongoing uncertainties with regards to the COVID-19 crisis, we have moved to cancel the JURE 2020 conference.

JURE membership

JURE membership is aimed at master and PhD students, as well as graduates who have received their doctorate within the last three years.

Being a JURE member allows you to take part in the JURE and EARLI Conferences and meet colleagues from all over Europe. EARLI commits itself to offering junior researchers the opportunity to become actively involved in the association, at a strongly reduced fee (€ 35 per calendar year).

Each year, five JURE members will be given the opportunity to benefit from an international mentoring visit for a period of 2-4 weeks.  The mentor, who is an EARLI member and an experienced scholar in his/her respective field, can provide guidance and support to the doctoral student in a variety of themes. This grant is not intended to finance regular PhD-project activities.
