These themes will provide methods of approaching the following questions:

For each workshop, the convenors and 2 – 3 invited participants will be asked to prepare a brief and informal discussion starter, which might take the form of a commentary on existing literature or research, or a discussion of a particular project, research methodology etc. The discussion will be structured to lead to the identification of potential collaborative projects and papers for publication.

Each of these workshops will match ECR participants with established researchers in order to develop their presentation, research narratives and final publications. The interdisciplinary nature of the project will benefit ECRs who are working across disciplinary areas but may not be in contact with researchers working on similar questions outside their institutional or professional base.


Please Note: Reports are available for most of the completed workshops, and can be found in our reports section.
