The APSAD Early-Mid Career Researchers (EMCR) Networking Breakfast is an excellent opportunity to network with other EMCRs and senior researchers and hear invited speakers discuss a priority topic selected based on feedback from APSAD EMCRs.

This year’s event will focus on research leadership and management. Topics will be wide-ranging, including transitioning into a management role; establishing an active research group; fostering an inclusive culture; managing up, down and across; and building your track record of research leadership. A panel of mid-career and senior researchers includes Dr Amy Peacock from the National Alcohol and Drug Research Centre (NDARC) University of New South Wales, and Prof Billie Bonevski from Flinders University. They will briefly discuss their experience before sharing tips and advice in response to questions from attendees. There will be plenty of time allocated for networking with other EMCRs and senior researchers from the field. Other speakers are to be announced.
