***To register visit: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/hack-a-demia-future-proofing-your-academic-career-tickets-27429728055
Who is this event for?
This event is exclusively for PhD students and Early Career Researchers from Exchange partner HEIs and TCCE member universities.
What is the purpose of this event?
The development of Early Career Researchers is at the heart of The Exchange project, and in a fast changing and challenging environment, researchers are having to be increasingly resilient, expert and well grounded. Hack-a-demia will look at the challenges and opportunities for ECRs and how they can develop their research footprint.
This conference will also be a valuable networking opportunity for ECRs to extend their contacts and share experiences and expertise with a large and cross – disciplinary group of peers, and will provide a space where ECRs can help TCCE shape the next stage of The Exchange project, and the support, development and networking opportunities that we can offer to help them on the next steps of their academic career.
What will happen at this event?
Hack-a-demia will feature a mix of presentations, panel discussions and workshops followed by networking drinks.
More information on the structure of the day and a full list of contributors will be available shortly.

- Dr Steven Hill, Head of Research Policy, HEFCE
