ANDI Early Career workshop (Wed 24 October 2018)

Are you an Early Career Researcher keen to put your research in a bigger perspective and to think beyond your discipline? If so, ANDI wants to hear from you!

The Australian National Development Index (ANDI) project are hosting a workshop to foster ECR engagement with the project. The workshop aims to brief Early Career Researchers (ECRs) on the project, and seek their comments on and responses to it. Most importantly, the ANDI team seeks ECRs’ views about how they might engage with the project, which offers exciting possibilities.

The ANDI project is part of a wider global movement for progress ‘beyond GDP’. By measuring progress against clearly defined goals supported by the community, ANDI is intended as both a national policy and planning tool, helping to define and measure our national vision, and a process to strengthen Australian democracy. In a truly interdisciplinary initiative, ANDI will develop a new, ongoing index of Australia’s progress, wellbeing and sustainability across 12 ‘domains’ covering all key areas of Australian society – economic, social, cultural, environmental and democratic.

The Workshop is an opportunity for ECRs to provide feedback on how they think the project should be developed over the next five years, so as to widen the career opportunities for young researchers and support their capacity to work collaboratively. In particular, we want to examine the possibilities for collaborative research applications and for an ‘Australian Progress Fellows’ program that might be funded through scholarships or grants.

The workshop will be held on Wednesday 24 October, 10.00am – 1.00pm
