The Young Researcher Meeting has been a rapidly growing event for the last few years. Together with other initiatives emerged in several research areas, the young researcher meeting marks the awareness and the desire of PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and young researchers to play a major role in the scientific progress.

Dandelionthinker: Have you worked on a concept or prototype that just needs to be embedded in the industry to take off? Have you found a solution to one of the problems that represent the bottleneck of some production chain and you are eager to have a big impact?

The Gravity Room is a nonprofit outreach project that was initially supported by the EC through Intra-European Marie Curie contracts and by FCT-Portugal. We are physicists, not of the kind you can see in movies or TV series, though. We are a heterogeneous group of master students, researchers, Ph.D. students and people that share their life. We are mostly "exiles" because one of the funniest part of our work is to travel continuously and work worldwide. We often share that kind of mood which is a mixture between missing our home country and being excited to live elsewhere. On the other hand, our condition provides us with a unique window on education, research and life in many different places, an experience that we believe is worth sharing.
