ECPR is organising its Research Sessions 2014 at the University of Essex, on July 8-11, 2013. The Research Sessions offers established collaborative groups the opportunity to step away from their hectic work schedules and focus on commencing, or completing their research in an environment suitable for concentrated discussion.
Helping your project succeed
Held in superb facilities and organised to make sure you have peace and quiet to fulfil your aim — each Session will have access to AV facilities, tea and coffee breaks, and be completely free of interruptions. Your accommodation and food will be organised by the ECPR to make sure your experience as stress-free as possible.
Being a part of the Research Sessions, groups receive additional support and recognition that the standard of work meets the expectations of the ECPR. In addition, groups have the added opportunity of publishing with the ECPR Press.
