ECR Summer Showcase 2024: Navigating Mentorship

04 Jun 2024


We are excited to announce the end-of-term ARC North Thames ECR Summer Showcase 2024 taking place on the 4th of July between 10am and 4pm!

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 presentations will take place live over Zoom, being live-streamed for all to attend. The showcase represents a fantastic opportunity for students 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.

While everyone is welcome to attend the showcase, it's important to note that the afternoon sessions (Mentorship Workshop and Speed Mentoring) will be in-person, in Central London, with limited spaces. Only the morning sessions (10:30am-12:45pm), including the Keynote Address and ECR Showcase Presentations, will be streamed online via Zoom. 
Whether you attend the showcase on Zoom or come along in person, we're looking forwards to meeting you!
