Connecting and supporting early career researchers working in and around peatlands worldwide

The Peatland ECR Action Team is a network by wetland scientists for wetland scientists


We are the Peatland Early Career Researcher (ECR) Action Team (PEAT).

We welcome fellow early career researchers to connect with likeminded around the globe. Our mission is to connect and support students, post-docs, lecturers, scientists, and young professionals, practitioners, and professors for passing on experiences, sharing knowledge and wetland wisdom.

We offer a platform for exchange and networking, connecting peatland and wetland enthusiasts of all kind, origin, gender, and colour.

Join the inclusive work space via Peat ECR Zoom and be productive using the Pomodoro technique.
