Local Chapters Programming
The purpose of CRS Chapters is to promote and stimulate local involvement in the delivery science community, enhance delivery science through collaboration, provide local networks, and to introduce at a local level the benefits of CRS membership. International Local Chapters act as resources for CRS-hosted meetings and events, topical workshops, webinars and other scientific-based educational opportunities, by providing insight and scientific content.
Date/Time: Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 3:00 PM to 6:30 PM
The Local Chapters YS Pre-Meeting Workshop will allow young stars, selected by the individual chapters, to share their innovative research with the wider CRS community. Two senior scientists, Avi Schroeder and Joao Nuno Moreira, will also be delivering keynotes during this workshop. Attendance is open to everyone, not just young scientists, so please come along to support our young stars, hear about innovative research from all around the world and network with colleagues at the subsequent Local Chapters Meet & Greet.
Date/Time: Saturday, July 20, 2019 - 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM
The Local Chapters Meet-and-Greet is a networking event aimed at getting to know your colleagues from around the world in an informal manner. This is an opportunity to make new connections and discuss issues that are beyond the science per se, such as finding a new position, grants and funding, mentorship, and becoming part of the CRS community. Besides the Chapter Presidents (or their representatives) we also invite all other chapter members including young scientists to share their thoughts and goals for the CRS. One issue to be discussed will be how young scientists can become more involved in the CRS and what the CRS should focus on relative to young scientist training and promotion.
Date/Time: Sunday, July 21, 2019 - 3:30 PM to 5:30 PM
The CRS Local Chapters worldwide have selected the most outstanding research from their countries to be presented at CRS2019 on Sunday morning. You cannot missed this opportunity to learn from the best science coming from Australia, Canada, India, Israel, Malaysia, New Zealand, Spain-Portugal, Taiwan or UK. #BeThere
