Early Career Researchers
We are looking forward to welcoming Early Career Researchers to Translation 2024. There are several special features, including a special discount rate. Here you can explore what's happening at the conference for ECRs.
Enjoy the whole conference for only £50.
We appreciate that few ECRs can stretch to the full cost of the conference. So, there is a special ECR rate of £50 which includes attendance for the whole of the conference, including our special ECR morning on 18th April.
ECR WORKSHOP - 18TH APRIL (10-12.30)
Dedicated to Early Career Researchers, our special morning workshop on 18th April precedes the start ofhte main conference. It was a popular part of our first Translation conference last year and will once again highlight the plethora of resources available to help researchers from DPUK, our partners (such as Alzheimer's Research UK), and the wider dementia research community.
SUBMITTING AN ABSTRACT TO THE CONFERENCE
There is wide scope for ECRs to submit a poster presentation with the themes of the conference spanning all aspects of translation in dementia research.
There will be prizes for the best presentations and Flash Talks. So, Step One is to submit your presentation for consideration. You can do this as part of the Registration process.
The deadline for abstracts is 5pm, Thursday 29th February.
CRITERIA TO QUALIFY AS AN ECR AT TRANSLATION CONFERENCES
Applicant skills and experience
DPUK’s formal definition of an ECR is an individual who is within ten years of the award of their PhD or equivalent professional training, or an individual who is within six years of their first academic appointment. These durations exclude any period of career break, e.g. for family care or health reasons. The ‘first academic appointment’ is defined as the first paid contract of employment, either full-time or part-time, which lists research and/or teaching as the primary functions.
