Emerging Researchers' Conference on Employer Engagement and Training

The charities Education and Employers and the Edge Foundation invite you to a free half day conference in Central London, on Wednesday 4 July 2018, 13:00-17:00 at a venue to be confirmed. The Emerging Researchers’ Conference is closely linked and precedes the 5th International Conference on Employer Engagement and Training. It provides a unique opportunity for postgraduate and emerging researchers to share and discuss their work with peers and scholars in a supportive and developmental environment.


Conference papers will be collated as Research for Practice essays. Papers presented at the London conference can also expect to be amplified across academic, policy and practitioner audiences. Papers and materials will also be disseminated through our research blog and newsletter which goes out to an audience of over 2,000 researchers, educators, policy makers and other interested stakeholders.

The themes for Emerging Researchers’ Conference are similar to the main Conference. Download the call for papers here.

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 20th January 2018

Notification of accepted papers: end of February 2018
