The aim of the PYRN organisation is to gather young permafrost researchers to network and share ideas on the latest scientific discoveries on permafrost. The meeting will be held at the Museu Cerdà in Puigcerdà, Spain. The Workshop and social event will focus on training and networking specifically young permafrost scientists. The event will involve a whole day of workshops on both technical and soft skills. The program of the Workshop involves: i) half day of talks on permafrost-related scientific topics; ii) half day of talks on soft-skills topics, e.g., writing proposals, pursuing a permafrost career outside academia.
