Early Career Researcher Network

ECN Meet and Greet

Join us for a drink and a chat before the Welcome Reception on Monday 29th. This is an opportunity to meet other early career delegates before the conference officially starts, and to hear about what ECN events will be taking place during the conference. We will then walk over to Parliament together for the conference Welcome Reception.


Breakfast Session – Writing Successful Grant Applications

This session will involve a panel discussion with senior researchers and research office staff involved with grant application submissions. Panel members will present their views on what makes a successful grant application, and there will be plenty of time to ask questions to the panel. This event will give early career delegates an opportunity to hear from people who have a track record of success in securing grant funding about how to develop a successful application.


Early Career Network Social Night

Join other early career delegates to sample the nightlife of the capital city of New Zealand! Wellington has some excellent bars and restaurants, and we will aim to visit a few of them over the course of the evening.


Early Career Network Business Meeting

The ECN business meeting will take place during the regular conference program to discuss the structure, activities and future of the EPICOH ECN group. Everyone interested is invited to attend the meeting to help plan future activities and events.
