ECR Network

The Research Services Directorate supports Early Career Researchers (ECRs) through a diverse range of networking and support mechanisms to help Researchers become established in their chosen field and achieve research excellence with impact.

The Early Careers Network has been established to foster a collegiate research community within De Montfort University, to help Researchers become established in their chosen field, create strategic alliances and raise their professional profile. 

The Network provides a framework for support, networking and collaborations both with ECR colleagues and multi-disciplinary research across faculties.  More specifically it provides opportunities and a supportive space for ECRs across the university to meet up, both virtually and at events and share their experiences.
