Early Career Researcher Network (ECR)

The ECR Network is led by Dr Rianne Haartsen and a committee of members working hard to meet the needs of our members (meet the ECR Committee). 


Our Early Career Researcher Network spans Research Assistants, PhD students and postdocs from different disciplines and Universities, to train the next generation of researchers in multi-disciplinary aspects of Neurotechnology.  The Early Career Researchers committee aims to support early career researchers in their career and skill development. A survey sent out at the beginning of the network revealed that early career researchers are eager to engage in mentorships. The committee have successfully set up the two rounds of 1-2-1 mentorships and peer mentorship groups. 

If you would like to be a MENTOR please follow this link.

The ECR network have also had two lab visits to date, one at Birkbeck at the Toddler Lab, University College London and another at King’s College London.

Next, the committee will focus on organising our dedicated autumn workshops in 2024.


The ECR Network organises:


  • Training workshops (virtual and in-person)
  • a summer school in 2024
  • Peer-to-peer and on 1-2-1 cross-discipline and cross-sector mentorship programmes 
  • Cross-sector secondments and study visits



We are open to any suggestions and ideas on how we can support early career researchers.
