Early Career Forum

Mathematical Sciences Early Career Forum Members 2018-19

The Mathematical Sciences Early Career Forum was established in 2014 as a way for EPSRC to interact with researchers in the early stages of their career in order to share information on EPSRC policy and process. The forum is also an opportunity for early career researchers to network with colleagues from across the country, interact with senior academics that have a strong connection to EPSRC and to discuss future EPSRC strategy related to the Mathematical Sciences.

The aims of the forum are as follows:

  • To develop early career researchers understanding of EPSRC, including strategic priorities and funding mechanisms.
  • To act as an informal advisory stream regarding EPSRC's Mathematical Sciences strategy, allowing early career mathematical scientists the opportunity to develop strategic influence and communication skills
  • To identify and support future research leaders in the Mathematical Sciences.
  • To develop relationships with early career researchers who will become future advocates for EPSRC.

Current members of the forum are:
