Junior Network 


Who we are?

We are young researchers in the field of early childhood in Switzerland and form a interdisciplinary network for exchange, sharing ideas and discussion. We organise different events such as online meetings or a preconference at the Annual Meeting. More ideas for other events are always welcome.

The SSECR Junior Network adresses

  • junior researchers (PhD-Students and early Post-Docs) and
  • practitioners who have some understanding of research (e.g. through a Masters Degree) and would like to learn more 

To be a member of the junior network one has to be a junior member of SSECR. Potential new members are always welcome to participate in an event to get familiar.

Online Meeting: Coffee/Tee and Talk

The aim is to get in touch with each other in a relaxed atmosphere with coffee or tee and to connect Early Career Researchers in the field of early childhood research.
Every month there is the opportunity for a zoom-meeting at a specific date (changing workdays) at 1pm where we first split up in random groups of two to get to know each other in person (It is easier to communicate this way than in big groups). At 1:15pm there will be a short, creative presentation by one of us about a PhD- or work related project. At 1:30 there is the possibility to opt out and get back to work (since your mug will probably be empty by then) or keep discussing the project and other issues that you would like to talk about among peers. This discussion will be moderated (e.g. by a member of the organising committee).

We are looking forward to chatting and drinking coffee or tee with you!
