Care for the Future Early Career Researcher Workshop
18th and 19th February 2014 at the Royal Geographical Society, more information on the event page on the AHRC website
Care for the Future: Thinking Forward through the Past organised an Early Career Researcher (ECR) Workshop on 18-19 February 2014 at the Royal Geographical Society. ECRs are defined as being within eight years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training or within six years of first academic appointment.
The aim of this facilitated workshop was to bring together early career researchers from a range of arts and humanities disciplines to identify key future research opportunities under the theme. Designed to give ECRs the opportunity to network outside of their own universities, sectors and disciplines, the workshop was quite successful in this respect. The workshop was highly participative, interactive and open to innovative ideas from participants about future research opportunities and priorities – and our 45 participants certainly delivered! We look forward to working with this cohort of ECRs interested in the Care for the Future theme further.
