Survey on UK ECRs – The deadline for completion is 27 October 2019:
The Global Young Academy are calling on all UK early and mid-career researchers to complete their survey on ideas for future engagement in science and society. Twitter announcement: https://twitter.com/GlobalYAcademy/status/1178678214006366211 and full details below: “To explore better ways to support and empower Early Career Researchers in tackling societal issues, we encourage ECRs in the UK to complete a short survey consulting them on the possibility, desirability and feasibility of setting up a UK-wide Young Academy, or another type of ECR Forum.
To date, more than 40 young academies, have been established around the world, complementing the network of senior academies of sciences and humanities. Besides cherishing research excellence, young academies aim to contribute to societal change through inter-generational and interdisciplinary dialogue and public engagement, giving ECRs a distinct voice in research and policy discussions. An excellent example is the Young Academy of Scotland, but many others exist throughout Europe and worldwide.
The survey has been compiled by a group of ECRs from across the UK, working in a wide range of disciplines. It is the result of a meeting of UK ECRs in March 2019, hosted by the Royal Society and the British Academy, to explore how best to support and empower UK ECRs. The survey is hosted by the Global Young Academy on the following website:
The survey is anonymous and open to all UK-based ECRs. It should take 5-10 minutes to complete. The deadline for completion is 27 October 2019.
