Euraxess Reflex


Project is part of the activities of the EURAXESS Network

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement no 643510.

Scenario workshops

Central principle of the project activities is the bottom-up approach and direct involvement of researchers, their employers and other stakeholders who are engaged in the career development support. Project encourages this involvement through the specific activities such as organisation of scenario workshop in all project countries. These events will help identify issues of crucial importance for the career development of different groups of researchers in the respective country. 

Aims of a scenario workshop include raising awareness of (future) problems, helping to develop common definitions, facilitating discussions between different actors, examining the differences and similarities, as well as problems and solutions as perceived by the participating role groups; cultivating steps and solutions for foreseen problems and stimulating teamwork in coming up with solutions and/or recommendations for the specific problem.(See

Original scenario workshops methodology was adapted according to the needs of the project and specific topic it addresses. Up to 30 - 40 participants including researchers and representatives of relevant stakeholder groups should participate in each of the national workshops. The composition of the groups will be based on the outcomes of the stakeholders mapping process and will differ from country to country. However, the following groups should be represented in each of the events: (1) Delegates of national organisations representing researchers, (2) Individual researchers (diversity of the individuals researchers with regard to gender, career stage, type of career pathway, sectorial background etc. will be ensured), (3) Researchers’ employers from various sectors (public, private, NGO) and research funders, and (4) Researchers’ career support professionals.
