IGAC Early Career Programme Update
As with the main conference, the IGAC early career programme will be going virtual this year and will take place the week prior to the main conference on 6th-10th September 2021.
Historically, the early career programme has consisted of a short course accessible to a small group of participants, the week prior to the conference alongside a conference programme of networking and skills events open to all, during the main conference. The focus of these has been networking between ECS and established scientists, one another and skills development.
This year’s programme will replace the Early Career Short Course and will take a different format, recognising the unique challenges facing early career scientists during the COVID-19 pandemic. In 2022, we hope to resume the traditional format of an in-person Early Career Short course and separate conference programme.
Applications from 2020 for the IGAC Early Career Short Course will not be carried forward, and instead we intend to make the majority of the sessions for the 2021 Virtual Early Career Programme open to all.In order to establish the extent to which this is possible, and the demand for different sessions, we request anyone interested to register their interest here for the sessions you would be interested in.
