challenge: add value to dairycare stsms
As part of the future development of the Action, we plan to attach more importance to STSMs and encourage higher scientific quality, relevance and especially cross-disciplinarity. At our Strategy meeting there was a concensus that STSMs would be improved if there was:
STSM Speed Dating Session
The Programme for the Lisbon Conference includes a Speed-Dating session starting at 09.30 on the Thursday morning. This is planned to be a bi-directional exercise:
We plan to make more money available for STSMs in the last year of the DairyCare Action, and we also intend that STSMs will be linked to cross-disciplinary groupings that are applying for Small Workshop Incubator Grants (SWIG), so there is extra incentive to get involved! The Speed Dating is deliberately at the start of the Programme so that people can get together before the Workshop Incubator session on Friday afternoon.
