Early Career Researcher Day is the first event of its kind in Manitoba. The University of Winnipeg and The University of Manitoba are jointly holding the event to bring emerging researchers together with experienced grant writers and funding experts where, together, they will interactively explore the research lifecycle.

Experts from the University of Winnipeg, The University of Manitoba, Mitacs, and Research Manitoba, among others, will participate in info sessions, panels, and workshops, to provide information and support attendees throughout the day. Attendees will jointly develop original research project ideas in order to engage with the entire research lifecycle.

The event presents a unique opportunity for early career researchers to:

  • Develop new partnerships
  • Workshop a project idea with the support of experts
  • Think beyond the proposal to convey competence and feasibility

Please note:

  • Anyone who considers themselves an Early Career Researcher or who is interested in participating is welcome to attend
  • Participants who cannot attend the full day are encouraged to RSVP for the morning or afternoon session alone
