ECR Showcase 2024: Navigating Mentorship

02 Jul 2024


We are excited to announce the ARC North Thames ECR Showcase 2024 taking place on the 5th of September between 10am and 3pm!

The theme for this year’s showcase is ‘Navigating Mentorship’. The event will feature presentations of Early Career Researchers and their journey into and through research, either directly ARC-funded or at an ARC NT partner organisation. We hope that the presentations will highlight the diverse paths of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) as they navigate mentorship in their research journeys.

The showcase represents a fantastic opportunity for researchers to engage with a wide scientific audience and for ARC partner organisations to see the breadth of applied health and social care research at ARC North Thames. This event will be hybrid. The keynote session and ECR presentations will take place live over Zoom for all to attend, with a limited number of in-person spaces available. While everyone is welcome to attend the showcase online, please note that you can only join the Speed Mentoring session in-person, in Central London, and you must register to attend. Whether you attend the showcase on Zoom or come along in person, we look forward to meeting you!
