Inaugural ECR Forum - 21 January 2019, University of Plymouth
Forty people spanning 16 different UK institutions and a wide range of research areas attended the ECR Network Forum. Activities at the Forum included research presentations, breakout sessions, and plenty of opportunities for networking. Professor Greaves, Hub Director, and the ECR Co-Directors also gave presentations on the structure of the Supergen ORE Hub and Hub support that will be available to ECRs, including a specialist research fund. An important theme of the day was the opportunity to network with ECRs from different disciplines and present our work and ideas to a range of academics, ECRs and industry. All attendees prepared a poster summarising their research work and gave a short 3-minute presentation summarising their background and their work to stimulate discussion.
