Bridging the gap between academia and business

Posted on 20 January 2021

Colleagues from The York Management School (TYMS), based in the Faculty of Social Sciences here at York have recently established the Early Career Researcher Forum.

The Forum, led by Dr Tina Kowalski, is an informal community that allows for open discussion and sharing of best practice to support those in the early stages of their academic career. It became apparent early on that the Forum would value more engagement with businesses and support to do so.

Collaborating with Miheala Gruia, Founder and Director of Research Retold whose expertise are to bridge the gaps between academia and practice, the Forum coordinated and developed the ECR Manifesto, which outlines the purpose, function and mission.
