Between December 2014 and January 2015, we conducted a small survey to assess potential interest in an early careers forum within the EUSPR, including expected benefits and activities. The survey was open to all members of the prevention community (i.e. not limited to early-career members of EUSPR). There were 53 respondents, reflecting a range of backgrounds and interests.
Key findings from the survey:
- Respondents saw the Forum primarily as a general platform for prevention-related news, networking opportunities and methodological support.
- Relatively fewer respondents expressed an interest in more in-depth activities (e.g. discussing one’s own work, getting involved in EUSPR conference planning).
- This was reflected in respondents’ preferences for priority activities (announcements, methodological forum or listserv, mentor/mentee-type scheme, pre-conference workshop, special networking event).
