Bridging the Gap: Knowledge Exchange between PGRs and ECRs in Defence Research
January 7, 2020 @ 12:00 am
Join us to explore ways of navigating the field of Critical Defence Studies as an early career researcher. This one day opportunity is being put together by early career researchers for their peers on the basis of sharing experiences and the ‘things we wish we’d known’. It is a collaboration between the Defence Research Network (DRN) and the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security (PaCCS) through which participants will be supported in working towards publication through a three-staged process involving two follow on PaCCS events.
What is the Defence Research Network?
The Defence Research Network (DRN) is for PhD and early career researchers studying defence, security or the Armed Forces in relation to policy, strategy, culture and society. We provide a platform to which PhD and early-career researchers can come together to share work, ask for recommendations, create a rapport with one another and support each other in the research process. To find out more check out defenceresearchnetwork.wordpress.com or follow us @DefenceResNet and to join please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
What is the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security?
There is a pressing and complex challenge to address threats to security and substantial capacity within the research community to support this. The Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS) is leading the response to this challenge. It is an initiative of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and was established in 2008 as the Global Uncertainties Programme. It aims to deliver high quality and cutting edge research to help improve our understanding of current and future global security challenges. To find out more check out paccsresearch.org.uk.
