CLOSER is delighted to announce the programme for our new 2024 Emerging Longitudinal Scholars (ELS) webinar series showcasing 10 early career researchers at the frontier of longitudinal exploration.
About the series
Chaired by CLOSER Research Fellow, Dr Neil Kaye, our ELS webinar series provides a collaborative platform for fostering knowledge exchange and showcasing research by early career researchers using UK longitudinal population study data.
We’ve curated a diverse programme of talks for this inaugural series. The range of topics covered will include: children’s development, healthy ageing, diet and health, employment and wellbeing in midlife, mental wellbeing, ethnicity and gender.
Each showcase webinar will include two 20-minute presentations, with ample time dedicated to discussion and collaboration. Launching in January 2024, these hour-long webinars take place once a month until May 2024.
