On the 11 of February 2019, the Early career Research Leader Fellowship (ECRLF) program held its first workshop with the fellows.This was a proposal refining workshop where the fellows had an opportunity to present their proposed work to the group of fellows and supervisors. 

Later in the day, the fellows had a sit down in teams to address the comments, refine their work and look at the potential industry, government and academic departments they can collaborate with.

This follows an Early Career Academics Orientation organized by DRIs that the fellows attended on the 7th of February 2019. The fellows had the opportunity to listen to senior academics share their academic journeys and receive much-needed motivation as they embark on their journey.
