Upcoming ECR Events

Networking and communication is an important part of academia and ECRs need to build wide networks both within LTU and externally. A new contact could lead to a new collaboration, project or a joint funding application.

In recognition of this need, the we launched a series of events to build a support networks within LTU. Throughout the year, we host events and activities to give opportunities for ECRs to:

  • regularly meet
  • share knowledge
  • discuss their work with a non-expert audience
  • learn from each other,
  • develop a greater understanding of the career of an academic.

We invite you to attend our events.

Coffee Club

We host a monthly Coffee Club to provide an informal opportunity for ECRs to get together.

It is held at Writer's Block in the Borchardt Library in Bundoora and is video-conferenced to regional campuses.

It is a drop-in gathering, but please RSVP to receive your free coffee or tea from Writer’s Block.
