Early Career Forum 2014
NCAS will be hosting an Early Career Forum on 15 May 2014 in York, at the National Railway Museum (http://www.nrm.org.uk/PlanaVisit/VisitYork/howtogethere.aspx). The forum is open to all early career researchers (usually defined as researchers within 5 years of submitting their PhD).
The general aim of the Early Career Forum is to bring together a group of early career scientists to:
- 1) discuss future research directions in NCAS science
- 2) broaden their exposure to the diverse range of NCAS science
