A young professionals development programme was hosted as a series of daily events for four consecutive days. The aim of this series is to prepare young professionals in their early career development, both in research skills and networking. This training programme is aimed at young professionals in sensing technology, from academia to industry. The goal is to prepare young researchers to develop, enhance and diversify skill sets needed for their career.

Four topics that are essential in the early-career stage of individual researchers were selected for young professionals and researchers. These include skills for writing a proposal, journal article writing skills, how to effectively review articles, and innovation and entrepreneurship for researchers. On each topic, there was a talk from invited experts, followed by an interactive discussion session. This provides a great opportunity for attendees to interact with speakers and colleagues, also to learn something new and boost their professional career.
