Early career researchers (ECRs) face many challenges as they set out on their journey into health and social care research, and must prepare to face an increasingly competitive academic environment in which to pursue their interests and passions.


As part of their programme of support the three London CLAHRCs (Northwest London, North Thames and South London) have come together to deliver a career development conference for early career researchers across the whole CLAHRC community on 4th October at Senate House London.

The one-day conference, delivered in conjunction with the NIHR Trainees Coordinating Centre, will be a mix of plenary sessions, skills workshops, delegate presentations and careers clinics. It’s a great opportunity for ECRs to connect and learn about further career development.

As well as senior researchers from across the capital we’re delighted to welcome key note speakers Dr Louise Wood, Director of Science, Research & Evidence at the Department of Health and Social Care (below left) and Professor Dave Jones, NIHR Dean of Faculty Trainees. Both will share knowledge and guidance arising from their roles in creating the next generation of health researchers

It’s a timely gathering, with the launch of the NIHR Academy set for late October 2018 (following a strategic review of training within NIHR) and the arrival of the successor to CLAHRCs, Applied Research Collaborations, or ARCs in 2019.

Places will be allocated on a first come first served basis so early registration is advised.

Registration for the event is now open at http://www.profbriefings.co.uk/nihrclahrc2018/index.html
