  • Call for Input: EAPS PhD Network

    A network which aims to strengthen research and networking opportunities for PhD scholars across Europe has recently been established and supported by the European Association for Population Studies (EAPS). The organisers aim to tie together current initiatives, and respond to the needs of its members, under one overarching network for Europe. They will do this by:

    - Promoting existing initiatives for PhD students like PopFest and Young Demographers to members
    - Providing a forum where new PhD initiatives can develop
    - Providing a central information point (e.g. courses, job opportunities, conferences) for students
    - Organising student events at the EPC conferences
    - Creating a database of the network members to facilitate networking and support between them
    - Responding to COVID-19 event cancellations by providing online platforms for PhD students to present and receive feedback on their work from their peers

    Francesco Rampazzo, CPC and University of Southampton PhD Student and Doctoral Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research, is on the steering group for this new network. Francesco hopes the network will help PhD students access the different initiatives which already receive EAPS support: “There are many different initiatives for PhD students from conferences to training. However, there isn’t an easy way to find them all. We want to put everything on the same page in order to be accessible to everyone.”

    The organisers are asking for your input by filling out a short survey (9 tick box questions).

    If you have any questions or suggestions please send an email to one of the members of the steering committee as listed on the website.
