Early Career Researchers

The ECRs group collects all young people that are involved in ASINA Project: researchers,  students, PhD students, postdoc, technicians, staff members and stakeholders. We currently counts 20 members, from 8 partners and 6 countries.
The aim of the group is to promote collaborations, improving and sharing knowledge, gain visibility and… having fun doing science!
  • Disseminating ECRs work
  • Organizing webinars and training schools
  • Increasing the connection and collaboration with other ECRs groups from NMBP-15 and NMBP-16 Projects
