Early career research network

Early career research network

The ECR Network and COVID-19

Although it is not “business as usual”, the ECR Network is still “open for business”. We are currently updating and tailoring our 2020 workshops and events, taking into consideration these new working conditions – see our list of events and resources below and please keep an eye out for more coming soon. We are also looking into resources and platforms to better connect the ECR community during this time of social distancing.

We would also like to hear from you as to what support you need at this time. The ECR Network Team are currently working remotely to do our small bit in flattening the curve so you can best reach us via email. You can also reach out to us via your faculty and department ECR Representatives.

ECR Network Advisory Group

ECR Network Advisory Group meetings are held every two months. Their purpose is to share information between faculties and central support and recommend activities for the ECR Network team to develop.
