Expanding your professional network
ERA can help you to expand your professional network. We offer researchers numerous opportunities to network and showcase their work through:
We offer training programmes for researchers through our PhD development programme and also through our C-DICE (postdoctoral development) activities.
PhD development: The ERA Skills Academy
ERA is working to meet the demands of the changing energy landscape by increasing the supply of highly-trained, skilled postgraduates across the spectrum of energy research. Utilising the current breadth of research in the region with over 500 academics and 1000 energy researchers, we want to develop the best energy researchers and create a talent pipeline to secure the UK’s position as a leader in energy research and innovation.
The ERA Skills Academy includes:
Postdoctoral development: C-DICE
The Centre for Postdoctoral Development in Infrastructure, Cities and Energy (C-DICE) provides a world-class postdoctoral development programme.
C-DICE is based around the Energy Research Accelerator (ERA) and UKCRIC partnership of universities, which leverages the collective capability of 18 leading research-intensive UK universities.
By participating in C-DICE, researchers will be a part of the largest postdoctoral network in the UK in the areas of Infrastructure, Cities and Energy. C-DICE will be able to provide access to a range of training and development opportunities designed around your needs, which you will be able to access via the C-DICE Portal to map a pathway through your research and career development.
