Running parallel to NDARC’s annual symposium, the inaugural NDARC Early Career Networking Event provides the perfect opportunity for Higher Degree Research (HDR) students and Early Career Researchers (ECR) to chat and network informally with peers and senior researchers in the Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) sector. Invited senior researchers will include a selection of prominent academics from a variety of backgrounds who will share their career experiences and insight.

This event is open to anyone working within the AOD sector. 

Light refreshments and drinks will be provided. Registration is free.

The Program

The event will have three main components:

  • 'On the Couch' with senior researchers (live-streamed and in-person); consisting of a curated panel discussion with key senior researchers, who will share insights and advice drawing from their experiences, where audience members can ask questions; and
  • Career Conversations: Lightning Round (in-person only); where participants can ask questions and connect personally in small groups with senior researchers. Over the 1.5-hour session, participants will have the chance to sit down and rotate between several senior academics;  and
  • Informal networking (in-person only); a catered informal networking session at the conclusion of the event
