ECR Awaydays

ECR Awaydays and Events

We hold a variety of early career researcher events, including ECR-led activities, and our ECR Awaydays. We also connect with organisations to provide information on our events listings about other events relevant to our ECRs.

Our ECR Awaydays cover a variety of career development topics.  They look at specific skills, relevant to both academic and non-academic careers, and provide an opportunity for ECRs to connect with peers within CCS.

Ideas for events come directly from our UKCCSRC community and are shaped by ECRs, academics and industry. As well as our Awaydays, we work with our ECRs to provide ECR-led activities through our ECR Activity Fund and we collaborate on events with other organisations and research centres.
