The Futures Lab

This event is currently on hold

The Futures Lab is our brand-new event designed especially for students in the final stages of their PhD looking to kickstart their career.

You spoke. We listened

Unique in its aims and scope, the Futures Lab responds directly to the ECPR mission to nurture the next generation of political science scholars. This initiative is an evolution of the former ECPR Graduate Student Conference and, following interactive market research with the graduate and student networks of ECPR, it has been redesigned academically and structurally. 

Two tracks. Limitless possibilities

The academic programme is designed around two main tracks:
Academic – for those aiming to pursue a career in academia
Practitioner – for those looking to enter public, private or NGO sectors

Content within each track is adapted specifically for each field, enabling you to learn best practice from our specialists. What’s more, you can join either of these tracks at any time as part of your registration, giving you the freedom to design a personalised experience that’s right for you.

Your tailor-made professional advice

No matter what your desired career path may be (even if you don’t yet have one in mind), the Futures Lab provides an essential platform for expert advice on:

  • Navigating the job market
  • Professional networking
  • Publishing in academia and the policy world
  • Fund raising and grant-writing
  • Essential professional skills development

Our cohort of leading experts, with experience and leadership in academia and the policy and NGO sector, will lead in-depth discussions and deliver hands-on workshops to boost skills essential to building your future career. We’ll also offer plenty of opportunities for networking in an informal setting, as well as one-to-one mentoring.
