The IDEAR Early Career Researchers Training Program is an informal training network for PhD students and early career researchers (ECRs) affiliated with the IDEAR network. The program facilitates networking, training and collaboration between ECRs at IDEAR institutions and senior members of the network.
The program includes workshops and training courses that run over one and a half days during biannual meetings of the IDEAR network. The half-day meetings are joint with senior network members. The purpose of the joint meetings is to: 1) share ECR research in the area of work, health and ageing research; and 2) explore collaborations and opportunities for career advancements. ECR meetings are planned by the ECR Training Committee in collaboration with the meeting’s host institution, drawing on competences of the host institution.
Contact persons for the ECR Training Committee are Kristin Farrants (email@example.com), Robin Högnäs (firstname.lastname@example.org), Baowen Xue (email@example.com), and Brian Beach (firstname.lastname@example.org).
ECRs at IDEAR institutions who are interested in joining the ECR training program should contact a senior member of the network or the ECR Training Committee. Travel and accommodation are typically covered by the home institution, unless the host institution has funds available to cover these costs or funds are available from the IDEAR network.
