The purpose of the Early Career and Engagement Interest Group (ECEIG) is to provide a focal point for Early and Mid-Career Researchers and Professionals, including those involved in various RDA-related fellowships and Early Career programs.
While other efforts exist in RDA to support Early Career Researchers and Professionals, such as the RDA-US and RDA-EU fellowship programs, the RDA ECEIG seeks to complement existing efforts by (i) building a peers network, (ii) maintaining a “live” document of advice for Early Career Researchers and Professionals and (iii) creating opportunities for formal and informal mentoring within RDA.
Specifically, objectives of this IG are to:
1. Focus on Early Career Researchers and Professionals because they need the most support
2. Establish a volunteer-based mentoring progam 3. Network across domains to establish an interdisciplinary network of peers
4. Provide a space for people who have more experience with RDA to pass on knowledge and lessons learned to Early Career Researchers and Professionals
5. Create a social outlet specifically for Early Career Researchers and Professionals
