Early Career Researcher Retreat 2023

At Alzheimer’s Society we’ve heard a lot about the difficulties of building a career in research and want to play our part in supporting Early Career Researchers to reach their career goals. After the success of last year’s event, Alzheimer’s Society ECR retreat is back for 2023 and we’re going bigger!

About the Retreat

The retreat is designed to be a networking opportunity and skills development event, offering an opportunity to meet fellow ECRs, gain peer-to-peer advice and learn practical skills that will aid you in your career progression.

This year we are expanding the event and have 30 spaces available to researchers from other funders.

We hope to see you there!
