The La Trobe ECR Network promotes a culture of sharing, from which members can contribute as well as benefit. The Network relies on the volunteering efforts of a handful of people. And to grow the network, we invite you to join us.

In 2015, the Early Career Researcher (ECR) committee formed to organise and host the inaugural networking event – the ECR networking conference. Since that time, the committee have hosted a second conference in 2016. In late 2016, the committee launched the ECR network series, using monthly informal gatherings to connect ECRs across La Trobe Colleges and campuses.

The aim of the ECR network is to provide young academics in the early phase of their career with a  communication and information platform.
