The Early Career Professionals group aims to provide its members with opportunities to enhance their knowledge, skills, and expertise by providing a platform for international networking with early career professionals or other members in the Cochrane community.
Though there is no one single definition of an ‘Early Career Professional/Researcher,’ bodies such as the European Research Commission, Economic and Social Research Council, and De Montfort University generally agree that an ECP is someone who is roughly within the first five year of their research activity. Informally, we also define an ECP as PhD students and post-docs.
This group has four main objectives, including international networking, representing trainees, active patient involvement, and knowledge translation.
Topic: Fostering international co-operation and junior researchers’ engagement during a pandemic
Presenter: Israel Borges, Federal University of Minas Gerais, Brazil
Date: Wednesday, February 17 at 4 p.m. GMT (view in your timezone)
