The Virtual Job Market for Young Researchers, organised by 5 Flemish universities, is an interuniversity career fair exclusively targeted at PhD candidates and postdocs. It aims to connect companies and organisations with highly talented and motivated young researchers who are keen to take their careers into another direction, either within or beyond academe.

EnergyVille will also be present, presenting some of its available positions.
