GW4 ECRs invited to showcase their research at the GW4 Climate Alliance launch

August 13, 2021

Are you an Early Career Researcher (ECR) working in Climate research? Would you like to present your research at our GW4 Climate Alliance launch?

GW4 is inviting ECRs at all stages to submit ideas for creative and engaging presentations to feature in an ECR showcase, as part of the official GW4 Climate Alliance Launch programme.

The launch of the GW4 Climate Alliance takes place on 20 October 2021 and will feature a keynote speech by Sir Tim Smit KBE, co-founder of The Eden Project, along with a showcase of GW4’s diverse portfolio of climate research and innovation. 

Dr Joanna Jenkinson, GW4 Director, said: “The GW4 Alliance is committed to supporting our research talent at all career stages  and across all disciplines. This is a fantastic opportunity for our ECRs to showcase their work to a broad audience of researchers, policymakers, industry leaders and funding bodies. I am looking forward to seeing the range of projects and ideas submitted.”

ECR presentations are expected to last 3-5 minutes each, will be pre-recorded and ideally showcase collaborating research involved two or more GW4 universities. They should communicate ECR research projects using creative and interesting ways to engage the audience. This could include using interactive methods or featuring audio-visual materials, images, or even exhibition pieces.  Presentations could be made in novel ways, for example using photography, poetry or animated short films, or using informal formats, such as a Zoom conversation between project members. 

The deadline for expressions of interest is 8 September 2021. Please see the GW4 Climate Alliance website for full details on how to apply.

The GW4 Climate Alliance is a platform uniting GW4 climate researchers who are delivering world-leading climate science, helping to shape policy and contribute to positive and equitable social change. The launch is part of GW4’s commitment to connecting practitioners, industry, policy makers, researchers, and the public, and to support the climate research leaders of the present and future.
