ECRW & A - Early Career Researcher's Workshop & Awards

The IAPS Early Career Researchers Workshop (ECRW) will be held prior to the IAPS 2022 conference on the 1rst and 2nd of July. It is intended to give postgraduate students of all IAPS-relevant disciplines an opportunity to discuss their research proposals and ongoing work with leading scholars and academics, and to build international networks with other students in the field of people-environment studies. The workshop language is English.

Sessions regroup students working in similar areas or with similar methodologies with two mentors.

Every student has 15 minutes speaking time and ensuing discussion with mentors and other students is given 15 minutes.

Prior to the workshop, papers are shared with mentors and other participants.

Masters and PhD students are invited to submit their in-progress work. Registration in the IAPS2024 conference covers the participation in the ECRW. Students register at a reduced fee.
