Hosted by King’s College London, 6 March 2019

Following on from the resounding success of the first ever dedicated Early Carer Researcher (ECR) Workshop, the IGT Network+ is organising its second ECR Workshop at King’s College London on 6 March 2019. Taking place before the main Network+ meeting, the ECR workshop is designed to provide a dedicated focus on talks relevant to ECRs and provide a platform for our ECRs members to share their own developments in the field. Early career researchers (ECRs) constitute the majority of the network’s membership and the network strongly believes in nurturing them and enabling them to use it as a platform to advance their careers.
