About the ECR Forum

The Supergen Offshore Renewable Energy (ORE) Hub welcomes members from our Early Career Researcher (ECR) Community to join us in person at the University of Oxford for our fifth ECR Forum, taking place on Wednesday 28 September 2022 in Oxford.

The ECR Community 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. The ECR Forum is a way for ECRs to come together and share their research and network with colleagues.

ECR Forum Programme

Previous Forums have included presentations from ECR Funding winners, keynote talks from industry, workshop sessions on funding applications and fellowships, and discussions around career development and progression.

A detailed programme for the Autumn ECR Forum will be released soon. Limited places will be available.

Who can attend?

This Forum is open to all ECRs who are researching/have an interest in offshore renewable energy. We define an ECR as: Post Doctoral Researcher Assistants (PDRAs), early career Academic Staff within the first three years of their academic appointment, and PhD Students within 12 months of completion who are exploring a future career in the ORE sector.

Autumn Assembly Registration

The ECR Forum will take place as part of our Autumn Assembly (which is taking place on Thursday 29 September 2022). Please note, separate registration is required if you wish to attend the main Assembly day. Find out more and register here.

Call for Poster Submissions - Expression of Interest deadline: 25 August 2022

As a member of the ECR Community, you have the opportunity to display a poster throughout the ECR Forum and Assembly, with dedicated poster and networking sessions.

We strongly encourage all ECRs to submit a poster presentation. Submitting and displaying a poster allows you to:

  • Engage with other conference attendees interested in the same subject which could lead to future collaborations
  • Promotes your research to senior researchers, industry professionals and policy makers
  • Allows for insightful, impartial discussion of your work by peers which can often provide future ideas
  • Offers the opportunity for you to practice your presentation skills and verbal communication, and allows for more in depth and informal conversations

The Supergen ORE Hub will award prizes for first, second and third place posters. These will be announced in the closing session during the Assembly on 29 September.

This event is hosted by St Catherine's College, University of Oxford.
