The Sustainable Care team is committed to supporting the development of Early Career Researchers (ECRs) linked to the programme worldwide. Our capacity-building strategy aims to build future scholarly expertise in the study of sustainability and wellbeing in care. Many universities in our partnership have linked their PhD students and emerging researchers with ours, forming an international early career scholar network on sustainable care, supported by our Senior Team and Partners.
