ECR Network 2014-15

I've finally finished preparing the programme of events for Kent's Early Career Researcher (ECR) Network.

The ECR Network exists to offer mutual support to academics at the beginning of their careers. The sessions complement the Grants Factory workshops, and provide advice on establishing your career.

There will also be opportunities to meet others informally and share the highs and lows of getting started in academia.
