We want to encourage communication between IoPPN early career researchers (ECRs)/postdocs, career services and representatives from sectors outside academia. It aims to make postdoc attendees aware of career development support that is available within the IoPPN and to educate on how sectors outside academia operate. Attendees will be presented with career path options beyond academia. There will be 8x30-minute sessions with two speakers briefly presenting their career path followed by a Q&A session.
