Early Career Network

The network aims to provide a forum for nutrigenomics researchers at the start of their career.

The network will provide the following:
* Opportunities to strengthen collaboration
* Support learning and career development
* Support professional development
* Foster an environment to encourage innovation
* Mentorship by senior NuGo members (if required)
* The opportunity for the views and needs of early career researchers to influence NuGo strategy and activities

To establish a sense of community and engagement amongst early-career researchers.

The network is open to any early-career scientists who are either currently conducting higher degrees (MSc, PhD etc) or are within 7 years of completing such degrees, and are actively engaged in the field of nutrigenomics.

Infrastructure and integration into NuGO:
The activities of the network will be supported by specific NuGo webpages, a Twitter/Facebook account, quarterly SKYPE catch up sessions and annual in person scientific/social events at the NuGo annual conference, and a limited budget.

Kathryn Burton will represent the ECN in the NuGO Management Board.

The ECN is very excited to announce a series of free webinars. For more information visit [1st Webinar]
