Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to follow up on the article in the bulletin, the information given to the departmental management about ‘Focus on your Career: Develop your potential’, and in the admin e-guide.

In essence, a ‘Focus conversation’ with your supervisor will provide you with an opportunity to reflect upon and define development goals that are realistic and achievable within the next 3-5 years. 

The process is devised in such a way that the ownership and actions towards success remain firmly in the hands of the staff member. Your supervisor is there to support you, provide guidance and give you feedback as you strive to achieve your goals.

The ‘Focus on Your Career’ conversation’ consists of four key phases:

  • Step 1: Preparing (for the conversation by attending the ‘Balance workshop’ for staff or ‘Balance workshop’ for supervisors)
  • Step 2: Having the conversation
  • Step 3: Taking action to achieve your goals (action planning)
  • Step 4: Getting support towards the successful completion of goals

Should you need more information, feel free to contact your HRA or L&D (Pascale Goy and Elizabeth Barzdo).

We look forward to welcoming you soon on the ‘Balance’ programme and in the meantime, can also be contacted via email:

Kind regards,

Scientific writing

We have found a new trainer, which was spotted by CERN engineers attending a conference, where his intervention was highly appreciated by all.
Raymond Boxman has also written a good book on this topic, which is available in the CERN library (paper and electronic)

The format is 4 consecutive half-days, with homework every day. We have planned a session in September.

Enrolment is open.

Respecting Privacy in the processing of personal data at CERN

With the publication of OC11, those people who process Personal Data might want to check if their practices are in line with the principles set out by the Organisation.

Our aim is to reach in first instance all service owners (some 200 at CERN), but the course is open to anyone who processes Personal Data.

There are sessions in English and French, and the course is highly rated by those who have attended the sessions already organised so far.

  • 24 June (French)
  • 25 June (English)
  • 13 September (English)
  • 7 October (French)


Here is an article with more info.
