Funding Sources

Travel Funding

ECoENet activities at ISE2016, ISRS2017 and ISE2018 were and will be funded by the main conference. This means that costs are kept to an absolute minimum.

Unfortunately we cannot provide direct financial assistance to PhD students and early career researchers to help cover the costs of travel, accommodation and registration for the main conference. We can, however, assist members in securing individual funding. Start by checking your eligibility for the funding sources listed in this document. If you find that you do not qualify for any of these, or would like some advice on writing a funding application, then please contact the organising committee who will do their best to help.


Other Funding Sources

We are currently working on it, won’t be long!


If you have any ideas on how to get funding in future meetings, we look forward to hear them. Please contact us or be ready to discuss when we next meet!

Engaging early career researchers in ecohydraulics: A participatory approach

PART 1 – Introduction

Back in February 2016, as the ecohydraulics community gathered in Melbourne to prepare for what was to be an excellent ISE2016, ECoENet held its first workshop for Early Career Researchers (ECRs). Since then, we’ve been busy organising, analysing, interpreting and publishing the workshop outcomes. Click here to read the paper in the new Journal of Ecohydraulics. Muchas gracias to all of those who participated in the two-day event, including John Nestler for giving an inspiring keynote talk and offering invaluable advice.


The aim of the workshop was to provide an opportunity for ECRs to network, share ideas and improve understanding of how they can contribute towards developing ecohydraulics as a discipline. And, conversely, to explore what senior members of the community could do to help smooth the way, for the benefit of all. We explored three main questions about ecohydraulics and the role of ECRs working within it:

  1. What are the major challenges in ecohydraulics today and in the near future?
  2. What are the barriers and opportunities for ECRs attempting to meet these challenges?
  3. What can ECoENet do to help?

In this series of blogs we will set the context and explain our approach to the workshop. Subsequently, we will explore ECR responses to each of the three main questions in much more detail than we were able to include in the paper.
