SDBN October 22nd 2012 Event: ScienceOnline, What’s In It For Me?
Posted By Mary Canady On October 3, 2012 @ 6:41 pm In Events,Headline | 1 Comment
ScienceOnline  groups have been cropping up all over the country and we are starting a group in southern California, with some help from folks in LA . At SDBN and other events, we see skepticism from local researchers as to whether the benefits outweigh the risks. Let’s hash it out with a panel of online science experts. From fast publishing, to fundraising, to finding a job, participating in science online has many benefits. The perceived risks may include divulging intellectual property or information and being seen as wasting time by your boss. We see myriad benefits daily and want to share with you our experiences and hear your questions and concerns.
Most importantly, we want to get your feedback on how we can develop a local ScienceOnline group which will help you. Also, note that this meeting is not specific to biotech and life science, all scientific disciplines are encouraged to attend. For companies wishing to reach scientific digital influencers, this event is also highly relevant. Of course, we’ll have ways for you to maximize interactions at and outside the event (Twitter hashtag: #sciosocal, LinkedIn Event ). Click here to register, we’d love for you to help us shape this group in San Diego!
