The authoritative source for independent research on UK-EU relations

13 May 2021

9:00 am to 4:30 pm

A Changing EU

Politics and Society

This workshop for early career researchers (ECRs) will introduce some of the key challenges and opportunities in communicating research findings to a broader audience.

The aim is to help ECRs achieve greater impact with their work and engage more effectively with non-academic audiences, potentially via future collaboration with UK in a Changing Europe.

On the day attendees will hear from a variety of experts and senior academics about engaging as wide an audience as possible for their research.

Workshop date and time: 9am – 4.30pm, Thursday 13 May


The workshop is open to all those completing a doctorate in social sciences or social scientists who have done so within the last 5 years.

The event is being held virtually via Zoom meeting. Registration is on a first come basis and due to the nature of the workshop we are only able to host up to 50 researchers. If there is demand we will hold another workshop later in the year.

All those who attend will be asked to write a 500 word blog on the subject of their research suitable for posting on the UKICE website. These will be discussed during the day.

Register your interest in attending here.

In order to secure your place, please send your 500 blog to with the subject line ‘ECR Achieving Impact Workshop blog’ by Wednesday 5 May at 12noon. Please ensure that your name is clearly featured on the blog.

After signing up your interest to attend we will send you an email with further information. Upon receipt of the blogs we will confirm places with the registrants with details of how to join the event. We will email when we reach full capacity.

The blog should be on a topic connected to your work which is of relevance to UK in a Changing Europe and is of a broad non-academic interest. It must be written in a clear and accessible style.

These blogs will be discussed during a breakout session. We hope to be able to run a number of them on our website.
