Early Career Researcher Network Regional Clusters
What is a cluster?
A cluster (formerly 'hub') refers to a university which applies and is selected to work with the Academy to support the successful delivery of the ECR Network in a particular region. It provides support for early career researchers and the British Academy at a regional level. It does not direct the activities of the researchers. The use of the term ’cluster’ is not suggesting a physical location, nor is it suggesting activities are centralised in one location.
The network has three clusters so far – the Midlands, Scotland and the South West – with London launching as the latest custer from January 2024. More clusters will be launched across other areas of the UK in due course.
