Networking and support

New platform launched to support networking and career development of heritage science students and early career researchers (ECRs)

Following the two workshops held in March 2021, we've set up a Slack workspace as a first step in supporting the development of a network amongst heritage science students and Early Career Researchers.

Our intention is that the topics for discussion are driven by the student and ECR community, aligned to different 'channels' of interest - but the students and ECRs we've been in touch with have said they'd like the network to be open to people at all stages in their career to help them develop links with other researchers and practitioners and to bring a range of experiences to the discussions on the platform.

We'd also like the community to co-design some simple guidance on use, so that people know what to expect from the workspace and how to engage with it.

If you'd like to join the Slack workspace, please email Caroline Peach to receive a link.

Seminar series to showcase emerging heritage science researchers and students

The Icon Heritage Science Group and the National Heritage Science Forum are organising a series of informal, virtual short seminars to showcase the research of emerging heritage science researchers and students. The programme will begin in March 2022 with lunchtime talks of 60-90 minutes. We are currently calling for contributors. More information can be found here
