About Us

The only organisation of its kind, the GRN is an active online meeting place for early career faculty, researchers and doctoral students interested in new thinking about these issues. Members come from a truly global diverse range of backgrounds and higher education institutions. Our common goal is collaboration, which is needed more than ever as the greatest problems of the day transcend narrow fields of work. We also seek to support one another in a vocation that can be lonely, isolating, and intensely challenging.

“Being a member of the GRN has given me even more motivation to do my work. I particularly appreciate the critical feedback I have been given by the other members of my writing group, as well as the many opportunities to engage even more with other researchers.”

Jasmin Beck, Junior Fellow

“The GRN is a global space where new ideas can be shared. This, as I see it, is a much-needed catalyst to surmount the many challenges that we are currently facing.”

Pranoto Iskandar, Postgraduate Member

“The GRN is an interdisciplinary, interactive academic community, where I have made international friends who share similar research interests and grow together through real-time discussions, mutual writing reviews and think tank construction. The friendship and knowledge gained from this experience will be increasingly valuable over time.”

Grace Wang, Junior Fellow

"GRN is is a growing platform to interact with several academics from all over the globe. The effective feedbacks and novel ideas form the Writing Group Sessions help to add diverse perspectives on our research. I am looking forward to benefitting from the think tanks and developing greater connections with other researchers.”

Saurav Ghimre, Postgraduate Member

“It has allowed me to connect and cooperate with experts in related fields in a very practical and meaningful way. Being a member of the writing group has also created another incentive for me to set certain career milestones and to be more consistent in developing my writing skills.”

Milica Arsic, Junior Fellow

We at the GRN understand that there has been inconsistent support during the COVID-19 crisis for international students undertaking their PhDs, and encourage universities to urgently:

Grant extensions to candidates for the length of any lockdown

Waive accommodation & tuition fees for the duration of any lockdown (as most services are halted and most international students are not on campus out of choice)

Where students are living off-campus, to provide financial support towards their accommodation costs for the duration of any lockdown

This will go some way towards alleviating the significant stress and anxiety being suffered by students during the pandemic
