Webinar on May 1st, 2018 - 16.00h (4:00pm) CEST
Judith Kamalski - Business Development Director, Elsevier.
In all the different roles she has had, it has been Judith’s mission to help advance science. During her PhD she was actively involved in conducting research experiments; while today she supports science in a more indirect way. She has advised universities and governments with data-driven evidence on strategic decisions (for example the International Comparative Performance of the UK Research Base), and she knows her way through rankings and evaluation assessments. In her current role as Elsevier’s Business Development Director, Judith takes a long term outlook on discoverability of high quality content, understanding that researchers need to produce high quality research. Judith takes a special interest in topics close to her heart, such as Women in Science, researcher mobility, and industry-academia collaboration.

How does a webinar work?
The webinar will be hosted using the software GoToWebinar. Once registered, you will receive information about the software, speakers and specific topics. Online, you can watch the speakers give their presentations live, and are able to ask questions and read the comments of the other participants who are participating in the webinar with you in real time. It will take about 50 minutes, in which there will be presentations by three experts. Each expert will give a presentation of under 10 minutes, so there will be plenty of time for discussion with the other speakers and questions from the audience.
