2019 EMCRA Steering committee

We have formed four subcommittees to champion our goals for the year:

  • Scientific
  • Social
  • Development
  • Communications

The Scientific subcommittee are the driving force behind our EMCRA Collaborative Award, and our annual research symposium.

The Social subcommittee keep us all networked face-to-face, organising regular social activities for EMCRs to catch-up and relax. These activities are a great way for new staff to make friends when they join our School!
