Registration Open for Early Career Researcher Networking Workshops

WUN, in collaboration with UNESCO and UNSDSN, is holding a series of free virtual networking workshops for early career researchers (ECRs) under the theme of ‘developing the next generation of research leaders for sustainable development’. The workshops will bring together early career researchers from all around the world interested in establishing connections to colleagues in their field.

Our first two workshops are now open for registration.  The first will cover SDG 13: Climate Action, with the second focused on SDG 4: Quality Education.  Although these networking workshops are principally for the benefit of WUN early career researchers, a limited number of places will also be available for middle and senior career researchers to further enhance networking opportunities for the ECRs.  Click through to learn more about each sessions, speakers, and to register.
