Early Career Research Events

The IMR put out a call for applications from early career scholars to organise small conferences, workshops, or networking events in collaboration with music departments and colleges around the UK. This new scheme reflects the IMR’s aim to facilitate the transition of scholars from graduate study to careers inside and outside academia.

The deadline for applications for the 2017-18 Early Career Fellowships has now passed. Details of this year's successful applicants and the original call for applications can be found here.
