Interdisciplinary Research Excellence

Early Career Researchers (ECRs)

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).
