Interdisciplinary Research Excellence

Early Career Researchers (ECRs)

Sustaining interdisciplinary research progress depends on training and developing the next generation of researchers. 

Early career researchers from across the University of Southampton are working with each interdisciplinary group (USRGs & Institutes) to help facilitate and promote interdisciplinary research excellence.

Our ECRs have come together from across different disciplines to form the Southampton Interdisciplinary Research Forum (SMuRF).

The first annual Southampton Interdisciplinary Research Forum (SMuRF) Conference took place in 2012 and was a great success! Visit the events archive page for more details, including the conference programme.

Working together, SMuRF and our USRGs and Institutes are bridging traditional disciplines and frameworks towards creating synergies between our exciting and diverse research disciplines to make a significant contribution towards understanding and alleviating some of society's major challenges.

Upcoming SMuRF events: watch this space for more interdisciplinary research excellence news & events carried out by our early career researchers.
