The ECRN is very happy with the first Early Career Day held at the next ESRS conference in Bologna in September. The attendance was very high and the feedback we got both for the presentations of the Early Career Day, the poster ratings and the publishing session included in the conference program were all very positive.

The ECRN executive committee also now welcomes three new members, Kate Porcheret, Lyudmila Korostovtseva and Madeleine Scriba and are very happy to have them on board.

We are now settling into our roles within the various ESRS committees and already planning the next Early Career Day and online events prior to the next ESRS meeting so please be in contact if you have any suggestions for future ECRN activities.

Also, if you haven’t done so already, please also join us on Facebook “ESRS Early Career Researcher Network (ECRN)”. The Facebook group is an easy way to be updated with ECRN news and to share your thoughts with us and other early career researchers.

We look forward to working for the early career researchers within the ESRS for the next 2 years.

On behalf of the executive committee, Early Career Researcher Network

Dr. Erna Sif Arnardottir, Coordinator
