Dear EUPRERA Community,

We are delighted to officially announce the launch of our newly founded European Network of Emerging Scholars (EUNES)–a network dedicated to advancing the careers of early- and mid-career researchers in public relations and strategic communication.

After many conversations during the past EUPRERA events among young and emerging scholars, we felt the need to create a pan-European platform, where the next generation of scholars can exchange, connect, and support each other. Finally, after an intensive phase of brainstorming and preparation, we are ready to kick-off EUNES at the upcoming 23rd EUPRERA congress in Vienna in September.

What is EUNES?

We are a researcher-led and inclusive network for early- and mid-career researchers who work in public relations and strategic communication fields. We support early- and mid-career researchers in their career ambitions, through skills development, networking opportunities, workshops, and other events.

What does EUNES do?
  1. Building Networks: We provide opportunities for international and interdisciplinary connections.
  2. Sharing Experiences: We facilitate mutual learning and intergenerational knowledge sharing.
  3. Facilitating Collaborations: We bring researchers together to develop collaborations on research and teaching.
  4. Strengthening Skills: We address and discuss issues related to professional development.
