ECR Connect is a program to equip OCIES researchers with the knowledge and skills to increase the impact of their research and careers. This will be an active group which meets in person and through its Facebook site as well as running events throughout the year both in person and online. The ECR Connect aims to facilitate networking opportunities amongst ECRs in OCIES and foster new collaborations. It will help develop an appreciation of the work of other ECRs and to facilitate future intercultural comparative research partnerships. ECR Connect events are specifically for research professionals based in OCIES including ECRs and late-stage PhD students. In addition, two OCIES later career mentors will be invited to join the ECR Connect, who offer help, guidance, advice and support to facilitate the research collaborations for ECRs in the Society.
