The event is open to PhD students and early career researchers from TCCE core member universities and Exchange partner HEIs only.
The Culture Capital Exchange is delighted to announce ‘Hack-a-demia: Future Proofing your academic career’a free one day conference exclusively for Phd students and early career researchers (ECRs) from TCCE core member organisations and Exchange partner HEIs.
This conference is part of TCCE’s Exchange project, a two year pilot co-funded by Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) and Arts Council England. The project brings 16 HEIs from around England, together with our core TCCE membership, to form a unique and extensive network of academic and industry contacts. For further information on the project, please see the dedicated website: www.wearetheexchange.org
The development of Early Career Researchers is at the heart of The Exchange project, and in a fast changing and challenging environment, researchers are having to be increasingly resilient, expert and well grounded. Hack-a-demia will feature a mix of presentations, panel discussions and workshops, to look at the challenges and opportunities for ECRs and how they can develop their research footprint. Editors from Palgrave Macmillan will also be giving advice on how to get published. The conference will in itself be a valuable networking opportunity for ECRs to extend their contacts and share experiences and expertise with a large and cross - disciplinary group of peers.
Hack-a-demia will also provide a space where ECRs can help TCCE shape the next stage of The Exchange project, and the support, development and networking opportunities that we can offer to help them on the next steps of their academic career.

Editors from Palgrave Macmillan
Dr Steven Hill, Head of Research Policy, HEFCE
