What is the future for the next generation researcher?
The aim of this very first NJF Conference is to discuss how we can protect academic freedom from a young researcher perspective and generate recommendations for future directions/guidelines to be published as a scientific paper and debate article. Invited speakers should come from leading positions in academia, industry, lobby organizations and other policy makers, funding bodies and unions.
