During this webinar, Oleksandr Berezko (General Board Member at Eurodoc) and Sara Pilia (Equality Working Group Co-coordinator at Eurodoc) will present the Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors training programme for Early Career Researchers (ECR), and the activities of the Eurodoc Equality Working Group, which aims to remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs who experience exclusion and discrimination.
Eurodoc is the European Council of Doctoral Candidates and Junior Researchers. It is an international federation of 28 national organisations of PhD candidates, and more generally of young researchers from 26 countries of the European Union and the Council of Europe. Eurodoc's mission is to advocate for positive change in the policies, culture and environment that affect the quality of training, well-being and employment conditions of early career researchers (ECRs).

Eurodoc Open Science Ambassadors
The Eurodoc Open Science Ambassador Training is a course designed to train researchers in key practices in Open Science. The course was initially aimed at representatives of early-career researchers from National Associations of Eurodoc to act as ambassadors in their networks and is now freely available for all interested researchers and policy makers. Currently there are 24 Ambassadors located in 18 European countries from Ireland to Azerbaijan. The new Ambassadors cohort will be recruited shortly. More information.
Eurodoc Equality Working Group
The Eurodoc Equality Working Group was built to support every ECR in development of their career as a researcher, particularly by helping remove the barriers encountered by those ECRs that experience exclusion related to “diversity”. The Working Group adopts an approach that regards discrimination and exclusion as the result of an intersectionality of multiple causes. At present, it is paying special attention to gender and disability issues as causes of discrimination. More information
