UKCCSRC Annual ECR Meeting 2015 – 23 June 2015

UKCCSRC held its annual meeting for ECRs on 23 June 2015 at University College London.

This event was dedicated to providing information and ideas on potential career pathways for ECRs. We aimed to produce an event that allows ECRs to gain a better understanding of a range of career pathways that might be open to them and explore what they should be doing now to maximise their chances of successfully pursuing their preferred career.
