Early Career Researcher Workshop and Developmental Awards

The Care for the Future Early Career Researcher Workshop was held in London on 18 and 19 February 2014, and sought to support Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from a range of disciplines and backgrounds to work collaboratively and develop innovative approaches to research within the theme. Participants were asked to use this opportunity to develop innovative ideas and approaches which could be developed into research projects. Funding for Developmental Awards of up to £40,000 (fEC) plus an additional amount of £15,000 (fEC) for international costs and/or activities for collaboration outside the HE sector will be awarded. The Developmental Awards offered ECRs, as potential future research leaders, the opportunity to pursue innovative ideas and approaches for research projects inspired by the workshop, and which would make a significant contribution to the Care for the Future theme. Details of the funded awards will be released in 2014.
