PUPOL Early Career Network

“PUPOL Early Career Network: Connecting the Leadership Scholars of Tomorrow” 

The Public and Political Leadership (PUPOL) Early Career Network (ECN) was founded in 2020 at the virtual PUPOL Conference 2020 to connect young scholars interested in public and political leadership as a sub-network of PUPOL: International Academic Network Public and Political Leadership.

PUPOL ECN connects early career scholars worldwide engaged with public and political leadership that addresses complex societal challenges.

The international network contributes to the development of early scholars on themes such as how to do research, how to develop research skills, how to develop comparative research internationally, how to relate research to policy, how to move forward in academia and how to build a professional international network in the domain of public and political leadership.

PUPOL ECN organizes regular meetings, workshops, and seminars. Social media groups as well as mailing lists are the starting point to stay in touch.

VISION We envision PUPOL ECN as an international academic network among early career scholars with the following three main goals:

Inspiration. PUPOL ECN offers a community that allows early career scholars to broaden their academic horizon, discover career opportunities and get in touch with remarkable scholars from across the globe.

Collaboration. PUPOL ECN has the goal to facilitate transnational academic partnerships, to offer a community for networking and exchange of experiences and to create an open-minded, innovative and empowering community spirit.

Impact. PUPOL ECN aims to create and share excellent academic research on public and political leadership and to work closely together with PUPOL to contribute to their general mission.

PUPOL ECN is always open to new members and looks forward to meeting you. Why join us?
