Early and Mid-Career Researcher Network (EMCRN)


The goal of the EMCRN is to promote a collegial and supportive culture across the University in all research areas. The committee will help achieve this goal by:

  • promoting networking throughout the ECU research community
  • promoting educational events to increase skills of all researchers
  • providing a communication channel for research-active staff to voice their ideas and opinions to the University Executive

For more information see Terms of Reference.

The Early and Mid-Career Researcher Network is open to all research active staff on an informal basis. All research active staff are welcome to join our events and discussions

Coffee and Connect

In our new environment of research themes, and with the added importance of research collaborations it is now more important than ever to get out of your office and meet other researchers. So come along and join us at the next EMCRN ‘Coffee and Connect’ morning. Grab a cuppa, bring a friend and come along to meet other researchers- who knows what connections will be discovered! Chat will focus on opportunities, challenges and ways forward.

Please contact your School representative (see below) for further details.
