Event description

Description

Join us to bridge the gap between ECRs and PGRs studying defence, security or the Armed Forces in relation to policy, strategy, culture and society. This exciting programme has being put together by ECRs and PGRs for their peers on the basis of sharing experiences. It is a collaboration between the Defence Research Network (DRN) and the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security (PaCCS) with excellent opportunities for networking and a particular focus on understanding and supporting early career publishing.

What is the Defence Research Network?

The Defence Research Network (DRN) is for PhD and early career researchers studying defence, security or the Armed Forces in relation to policy, strategy, culture and society. We provide a platform to which PhD and early-career researchers can come together to share work, ask for recommendations, create a rapport with one another and support each other in the research process. To find out more check out defenceresearchnetwork.wordpress.com or follow us @DefenceResNet and to join please email defenceresearchnetwork@gmail.com.

What is the Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security?

There is a pressing and complex challenge to address threats to security and substantial capacity within the research community to support this. The Partnership for Conflict, Crime and Security Research (PaCCS) is leading the response to this challenge. It is an initiative of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) and was established in 2008 as the Global Uncertainties Programme. It aims to deliver high quality and cutting edge research to help improve our understanding of current and future global security challenges. To find out more check out paccsresearch.org.uk.
