UPGro has supported 75 Early Career Researchers, of whom 42 were African and 26 were women [C13]

Early Career Researchers (<5 years experience post PhD or <10 years experience without PhD from Jan 2015) represented nearly half of the programme staff and were actively supported to present their work at conference, webinars and special workshops and training events were organised through the programme.

This cohort will representing a lasting professional legacy of the programme.

Even more Early Career Researchers from the Catalyst phase (2013-2015) have been interviewed in 2016 and 2019 and many have been promoted and developed thematic or geographic specialisms based on their UPGro work.
