EPICradles are an opportunity for Early Career Researchers (ECRs) from EPICUR partner universities

  • to acquire new research skills and competences, especially in the area of interdisciplinary & transdisciplinary collaboration in a European context;
  • to gain information on funding schemes,
  • to connect to ECRs and to develop collaborative projects.

As such EPICradles function as ‘incubators’ for innovative research led by ECRs. Overall, the main objective is to produce challenge-based projects beneficial to society, addressing such broad topics as sustainability, mobility/migration/identity, and public health. Known as EPIChallenges, these topics are meant to engage researchers in the broader responses to global questions about the future of humanity. During the EPICradles, ECRs will have ample opportunities to engage with senior scholars, administrators and experts from universities and beyond.
