For emerging academics and researchers, taking part in discussion groups and technical meetings such as conferences can have a profound impact on their research and communication of their work.
Researcher events are a chance to share research, learn about the latest developments in similar areas of work, learning from others and building valuable professional networks. The benefits to researchers is that they are better informed and connected with new knowledge that can be shared among colleagues and peers.
This group sits within the wider network of the UK Overseas Territories Conservation Forum (UKOTCF). It can recognise the valuable research being undertaken in or in conjunction with/across UKOTs and Crown Dependencies which leads to knowledge-transfer and capacity-building opportunities. While focusing on UKOTs and CD or small island jurisdiction it provides a critical mass for those working in some of the most biodiverse regions of the world.
The benefits and scope of an Early Career Researcher Network (ECRN) aim to fostering collaboration, growth, and impact for young researchers.
