Early Career Network

HDHL ECN logo
The Healthy Diet, Healthy Life (HDHL) Early Career Network is a dynamic and participatory community of early career researchers in the research fields of nutrition, physical activity, and health. Through online activities and resource sharing, the network aims to promote the development of key research skills, foster collaboration, and provide exciting network opportunities among its members.

About

The network was launched in 2023 and is growing every day! Currently, the network consists of 50+ members from 9 different countries and 20 research projects in the fields of nutrition, physical activity, and health.

Activities

  • The network organises regular online meetings and webinars. Activities are organised in an interactive format so members can get to know each other, projects and research, and share feedback and ideas.
  • The network aims to facilitate in-person meetings, for example at conferences
  • Members can join an online communication platform to chat with other members and gain access to all network documents (e.g., information about previous webinars and a list of relevant upcoming conferences)
