Our LEAD programme aims to help early career researchers run and promote their own research projects. We provide training programmes, advertise conferences & events, facilitate research opportunities and have an early career researcher spotlight to showcase research by ECRs.
Please note that we are not currently advertising conferences due event cancellations as a result of covid-19. If you would like to advertise an opportunity or conference that might be of interest to the ECRN in the future, or if you would like your research featured in our ECR spotlight, get in touch.
