Early Career Researchers Platform (ECRcentral)

A platform by early career researchers (ECRs) for ECRs to find and discuss funding opportunities, share experiences, mentor peers, and create impact through community engagement. ECRcentral is a community-driven initiative which was started by eLife Ambassadors 2018. The eLife Ambassador program supports the development of new initiatives ranging from preprints, reproducibility, and funding, by facilitating local discussions and connecting communities with international developments. In the funding initiative of this program, a group of Ambassadors teamed up to develop a central resource for early career research with comprehensive lists of research funding, travel grants, and useful resources.
