Postgraduate and Early Career Researchers Development
The professional development of postgraduate students and early career researchers is the purpose of activities aimed at complementing and enhancing existing mentoring, advisory, and support structures available to postgraduates and early career researchers. Activities include the development of student bursaries to support travel to important research centres in their field, assistance in developing short-term internships for postgraduates and ECRs in relevant industry locations, and travelling master-classes aimed at bringing high-profile researchers to the network participants.
Due to the nature of the node, the activities listed are less research projects as support activities.
