INOMICS Team is happy to announce
the winner of the
CONFERENCE GRANT CONTEST 2016
We would like to thank all of you for participating in the contest!
We had to take a very hard decision and choose a winner from over 670 of your excellent submissions! Our decision was based on the quality, creativity as well as motivation of your answers.
We are proud to award our winner, Vladimir Hlasny, an Associate Professor at the Economics Ewha Womans University in Seoul!
We share Vladimir's answers below:
1. HOW HAS INOMICS CONTRIBUTED TO YOUR CAREER DEVELOPMENT?
INOMICS has been my travel planner and companion for the past ten years, since the time I was looking for my first academic job to today when I search for conferences and fellowship opportunities to improve the exposure of my research. Through INOMICS I have held a fellowship that indirectly led to a consultancy that ultimately led to a regular position with an international organization.
2. TELL US ABOUT YOUR IDEAL CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE.
My most memorable conference was 6 years ago at Mannheim, on the topic of energy regulation. The institute holding the event was small and new, and was unburdened by bureaucracy or too much self-pride. All presentations received close attention by even senior organizers, and a sense of shared learning, goodwill and empathy permeated the space. Meals were low-key affairs at a cafeteria, and local students were invited to mingle with presenters. Indeed, student assistants were in charge of social program, which contributed to the youthful, learning and sharing climate of the event.
3. WHAT ONE PIECE OF ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUR PEERS TO ADVANCE THEIR ACADEMIC CAREER?
Check for calls-for-papers systematically, and develop a routine how to remember deadlines and respond to the calls efficiently. Like with good research, successful dissemination hinges on one’s organization skills. Save all calls in one place on your computer, prepare template letters (with a brief summary of your paper) and versions of papers ready to submit.
We are happy to support Vladimir in attending the Joint NIDI-RUG Workshop on Socioeconomics Differences and Health Later in Life organized by the Faculty of Economics and Business, University of Groningen.
We would also like to invite you to participate in the next year's edition of the contest!
