What is JIPI?

The Jornada d’Investigadors Predoctorals Interdisciplin├ária (JIPI) -Interdisciplinary Meeting of Predoctoral Researchers- would like to become a meeting point for all predoctoral researchers in Catalonia, where the possibility to meet researchers of other fields becomes a reality. It also aims to give answers to scary questions such as…

Who might be interested in my research?
Is my research useful?
What can I do after the PhD?

The JIPI is not a conventional conference. Here we experience with new formats to make the most from this short but intense day. For example…

What to do at JIPI?

ÔÇŽ and what else?


As a novelty this year we incorporate workshops to our program. We offer the opportunity to share and exchange views with experts in a comfortable environment. We will analyze topics such as the precarious economical and laboral issues of research in Spain as well as the role and situation of women in research.


A slot to share our opinion in several sensitive matters that do have an impact in our job! Is science cool enough? How does pursuing a doctorate affect us? What do you think?
This year, anyone will be able to ask through twitter using the hashtag #JIPIask.
In this edition JIPI 2018 we’ll have two sessions. At the morning session we’ll discuss how to make science more attractive and at the afternoon session we will address the mental health in academia.

Other formats

We will explore new formats to increase interaction among participants. What about tutorials? Or a demonstration session? Or a two-day meeting? What if… What if you had some ideas?┬áDon’t hesitate and share them with us! We’ll be grateful!

Jornada 2.0

If for any reason you are no able to assist to the conference, you can follow it through streaming!
What does it remain after the talk? In order to consolidate the JIPI beyond the day it takes place, we try to enhance its continuity though the internet.
