This event is free.

By presenting her research and professional development journey, Dr Massonnie aims to encourage discussions about project development and collaboration between early career researchers, the UCL community and external partners.

Jessica's work was supported by the IOE Early Career Impact Fellowship as a supplement to the Action Against Stunting research project, a 4-year research project funded by UKRI. The fellowship allowed her to engage in five bespoke training sessions about impact, and to mobilise additional funding. 

With this budget, an infographic was designed summarising the key factors and indicators used to map out early years environments. This infographic, which was reviewed by three NGOs, aims to facilitate knowledge exchange between researchers, policy makers, and NGO representatives, and to to support the methodological development of research and impact studies. It will be launched for the first time in this webinar.

This is particularly important because, for many early career researchers, applying for funding to conduct their own research can be a daunting experience. Yet with the right support and collaboration, it can turn into a creative professional development journey.

This event will be particularly useful for early career researchers.
