Early Career Research Network

A place to share, collaborate on, discuss and promote ORE research, get access to funding for ECRs, network at ECR Forum events and virtually through our online forum and contribute to the shape and running of the network.

How do we define ECR?

Post Doctoral Researcher Assistants (PDRAs)

Early career Academic Staff within the first three years of their academic appointment.

PhD Students within 12 months completion who are exploring a future career in the ORE sector.

A core component of the Supergen ORE Hub is to establish and support a network of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) across the ORE Academic sector. This network aims to connect ECRs with more senior researchers, in the UK and internationally, to create a diverse and supportive community that nurtures the next generation of ORE research leaders.

If you're an Early Career Researcher working in the field of Offshore Renewable Energy you'll almost certainly be interested in our Network. We're creating opportunities to give you the following benefits:

  • Share, collaborate on, discuss and promote ORE research.
  • Get access to funding for ECRs.
  • Network at ECR Forum events and virtually through our online forum
  • Contribute to the shape and running of the network.

ECR Research Funding

The ECR Research Fund is designed to be a flexible fund for ECRs to support small activities that either supports and develops existing research activities, or develops career skills further. Funded research activities should be aligned with the objectives of the Supergen ORE Hub and be directed at offshore wind, wave or tidal energy research. Multi-disciplinary or multi-sectoral proposals to the fund are welcomed.
