AIPEA Early Career Clay Scientists (ECCS) @ Euroclay 2023
Becoming a supervisor
Coordinator: Javier García Rivas
Complutense University of Madrid, Spain (email@example.com)
Accompanying a student is her/his research project, and enabling her/him to fulfill their potential can be the most challenging and yet the most fulfilling part of the job of a researcher. Unfortunately, universities may have only very generic guidelines on the topic, if any, leaving a place for improvisation (for good and bad). This workshop will share the best practices of experienced researchers who have been successful accompanying students to become independent researchers.

Writing a research grant proposal: where to start
Coordinators: Mohamed Mouafon* & Eisuke Yamamoto**
*University of Yaounde 1, Cameroon (firstname.lastname@example.org)
**Institute of Materials and Systems for Sustainability Division of Materials, Nagoya University, Japan (email@example.com)
To fund the research projects, early career researchers have to apply for grants and submit research proposals in response to different institutional, national and international calls. In some graduate programs, writing a research proposal is a mandatory exercise, but such a requirement is not common worldwide. The goal of the workshop is to provide early career researchers with a “beginner’s toolkit” how to design a successful research proposal. Confirmed researchers with an experience in successful proposal writing will be invited to give a presentation on their suggestions, where to begin, what aspects to include in the proposal and share their thoughts about what they would do differently if they would be starting their career today.

Clay Scientific Societies: interest in becoming a member
Coordinator: Guanzheng Zhuang
School of Environmental Science and Engineering, Guangdong University of Technology (firstname.lastname@example.org)
The role of scientific societies has changed with time because of the change of ways people access and share information. The workshop will review the current most common activities of different national clay groups, and the interest of early-career scientists in joining such societies and their role within them.
