University a key partner in British Academy Early Career Research Network

May 22nd, 2024

Nottingham is now a key partner in the British Academy’s Early Career Researcher Network (BA ECRN). 

The network is accessible to all UK-based early career researchers (ECRs) working in the humanities and social sciences – regardless of their funding source or background. 

Following a three-year pilot, The British Academy’s Early Career Researcher Network will embark on a nationwide roll out, with the University of Nottingham leading the Midlands and mid-Wales cluster alongside Lincoln and Coventry universities. 

This allows us to continue our national leadership in early career development support across the Arts and Social Sciences disciplines, reaching beyond our institution to influence the national and international development of early career researcher development support. 

Nottingham will provide support for the Academy and ECRs at a regional level. Events and activities will continue to be free to attend with a mix of online and in-person sessions within the local hub region.

Many ECRs in the Arts and Social Sciences at Nottingham are already members of the network through the network’s pilot phase and over the last three years they have benefitted from workshops, events, and networking activities. 

If you are not already a member, register now to become part of a dynamic and collaborative network of 4,000 ECRs.

As a network member, you are free to engage with the network as little or as much as you want to.   

Through collective efforts and strategic collaborations, the University of Nottingham continues to play a crucial role in shaping the landscape for early career researchers, ensuring they have the support and opportunities needed to thrive in academia and beyond. 

The BA ECRN is funded with support from the Wolfson Foundation and the Department of Science, Innovation and Technology (DSIT).
