SCRR’s third mini-conference for Early Career Researchers (ECRs): “Rural research in Scotland 2021: facing up to the challenges”

We have taken the decision to postpone the November 2021 SCRR Mini-Conference for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) until we can all meet in person. We are therefore rescheduling our gathering to March 2022.

This will allow us to plan for: face-to-face engagement with ECRs rather than an online-only experience; networking between ECRs and those from the public, private and third sectors; plus mingling with some of Scotland’s leading scientists. We will also be organising contributions (and question/answer sessions) from specialists on developing careers and writing for peer-reviewed publication.

This will be a richer experience for everyone, creating more informal opportunities to talk with ECRs and learn about each other’s work, as well as network with many others with an interest in rural issues.

We are currently scoping out Covid-friendly venues in central Scotland (e.g. Perth) as well as potential dates. We will update the website in the coming weeks to confirm new details.
