YICODE will support a one-day workshop for ECoENet oriented to Yangtze ecohydraulic research activities and relevant subjects. ECoNNet is an international research consisting of research students and early career researchers (ECRs) working within Ecohydraulics and the wider river sciences. ECoENet aims to help ECRs find opportunities and overcome challenges as they begin their careers. We have placed emphasis on holding workshops where we involve ECRs in brainstorming sessions focused on identifying opportunities and challenges, either from their individual experiences or following ideas provoked by keynotes from established researchers. ECoENet aims to develop platform to help ECRs find opportunities and overcome challenges they identified by providing tools and resources. Through our close association with the ecohydraulics and wider river science communities, our members can have a real impact on the future direction of river science for the benefit of academic knowledge and environmental management outcomes. The findings of our first workshop at the International Symposium on Ecohydraulics (ISE 2016) identified that ECRs need to develop their careers on an international scale in a way that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries (Wilkes et al., 2016).
We propose a one-day pre-symposium workshop, in which senior scientists will provide the basis for a group discussion on integrating ecological, physical and social values in river science. We will hear the keynotes experiences and use small group discussions to engage ECRs in brainstorming sessions focused on identifying opportunities and challenges around the topic area.
