WISER dinner in Gold Coast

WISER (Women of the International Society for Eye Research) will continue the tradition started in 2014 of organizing its dinner event early in the meeting schedule to ensure maximum opportunity for interactions between its members. As such, in Gold Coast the dinner is organized on the 20th of February evening for 50 attendees (tickets sold on a first come first serve basis), creating the informal environment in which senior researchers from all continents sit among Early Career Researchers sharing their experience and advice drawn from various aspects of their career.

Enjoy an atmosphere-driven dining experience in the exclusive large private dining room of the multi-award-winning Miss Moneypenny’s (only a stone throw away from the meeting venue). Exchange, network, and enjoy a feasting-style dinner in the exclusive circle of WISER! Enjoy a beautiful Gold Coast night with a glass on the adjacent outdoor terrace and have a lively conversation with like-minded Ladies (and Gentlemen).

WISER looks forward to another great meeting in Gold Coast with numerous networking and training opportunities for the Women and Early Career Researchers of ISER.

Looking forward to welcoming new and experienced WISER members!
