New cooperation with journals – EJC Grant and EJCS Prize at ECC 2020 Braga

ECREA is delighted to announce new cooperation with European Journal of Communication (EJC) and the European Journal of Cultural Studies (EJCS). The grant to attend ECC 2020 will be provided by EJC and the Prize for the Best Paper will be awarded by EJCS to ECREA young scholars in connection with ECC 2020 in Braga. Both journals will offer publication opportunities to the grant and prize holders!

The European Journal of Communication Young ECREAN Conference Grant

European Journal of Communication (EJC) and ECREA invite Ph.D. candidates who are members of ECREA to apply for the EJC-funded grant supporting the PhD candidate’s attendance at the 8th European Communication Conference in Braga, 2-5 October 2020. The applicant must have a paper proposal accepted for ECC 2020. The grant will be awarded to the applicant with the best accepted paper proposal. The amount of the grant is 1500 EUR. It covers conference fee, travel and accommodation costs and daily allowance and it is meant to support excellent Ph.D. candidates with limited opportunities to participate in international academic events. The grant holder will be invited by the European Journal of Communication to develop the paper proposal into a full paper, which will be considered for publication in the European Journal of Communication (though with no guarantees of publication).

The Ph.D. candidates who want to apply for the EJC-funded grant are invited to submit the following documents:

  • Short application letter explaining motivation to participate at ECC 2020 (150 words max.)
  • Copy of paper proposal which was submitted and accepted for ECC 2020
  • Curriculum vitae
  • Letter of reference from supervisor or mentor

The deadline of the applications is 3 July, 2020. All the requested documents must be submitted in PDF format to the email: info@ecrea.eu.
