TIEMS Young Scientists Network
TIEMS Young Scientists Network (YSN) was established by the student prize winners at TIEMS Annual Conference 2011 in Bucharest, Romania, forming an iterim Board as follows:
YNS seeks to connect young scientists from various backgrounds in the emergency and disaster management field, to make them play an active role in TIEMS, contributing with their ideas and proposals, and in dialogue with the established scientists influence TIEMS policy and activities in the emergency and disaster management field.
During the 2012 TIEMS Japan Chapter inauguration and workshop 22 -. 23 May 2012, TIEMS Japan Chapter invited to young Asian researchers to participate in the event, and Estu Mei from Indonesia and Amanda Fang Mann from China was the lucky students. Read their reports below:
Information Sharing Platform
YSN has created an information sharing platform through a web-portal, aiming to support young scientists in developing their careers, and at the same time actively take part in the discussion to improve global emergency and disaster management.
YSN aims to enhance the young scientists research by contrasting their ideas to the international level, link them to ongoing/future projects, establish contacts with the global emergency and disaster management community and inform about scholarships/interships and research subjects undertaken in TIEMS professional global network. Participating in YSN could boost the young scientists CV, be a link to job opportunities and raise the chances of employment.
YSN web portal contains forums with the challenges young scientists faces both on a short and long term. YSN provides an opportunity to network with other young scientists as well as with experienced emergency and disaster management professionals.
Applicants have to be at least a Master Degree student or up to two years from finishing a Master or three years from finishing a PhD Degree. He/she must be maximum 33 years old.
