Early Career Summit


The future of public and private sector-funded R&D hinges on developing a robust and diverse pipeline of talented early-career scientists, researchers, and engineers who can drive innovation and positive societal change. The objective of the Early Career Researcher Summit is to bring together a diverse group of early career researchers from across the medical, health, and science arenas to:

  1. Gain insights into the range of careers available to them 
  2. Empower them to secure and thrive in the career path they choose 
  3. Provide communication tools they can use for advocacy and other forms of civic engagement 
  4. Network with others across the R&D ecosystem
