ECN goals

The main aim of PAGES ECN is to promote the next generation of researchers to develop their own career track by strengthening international collaboration among early-career researchers (ECRs).

Skill-set improvement

Dedicated events, such as webinars and workshops, will foster professional development. Our webinars will cover a range of subjects from peer reviewing to R programming, following requests and feedback from ECN members.

International networking

We will host a skills database for ECRs to facilitate international collaborations in paleoresearch, and organise splinter meetings at international conferences to bring ECRs together. Additionally, we will actively support career development through networking opportunities both in and outside academia.

Increasing visibility

We will create a platform where ECRs are able to discuss scientific ideas with the wider scientific community. This network will also emphasize the importance of public outreach and encourage its members to engage in outreach activities such as public talks and school visits. Stay informed via our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Early-career researcher engagement

Through our Twitter account and blog we will increase engagement of ECRs within and outside the scientific community. Early-career liaisons within PAGES working groups will improve engagement of ECRs within PAGES. Collaboration with other early-career networks such as YESS and INQUA ECR will engage participation with the wider scientific community.
