Special Interest Groups
EECERA members who wish to engage in cross-national collaborations around a particular theme, form Special Interest Groups (SIGs). These collaborations can be simply for dialogue and deliberation or have a particular focus such as a research bid or an intended publication.
EECERJ has already published several special issues produced and edited by EECERA SIGs. If SIG Convenors need support in realising such goals, they can ask for support from the Coordinating Editor.
SIGs have at least two convenors, (of different nationalities, based in two different countries, one of whom should be working in a European institution), who are responsible for facilitating the work of the SIG. There is no additional cost for EECERA members wishing to belong to a SIG. SIGs meet at programmed periods during Conference each year and organise additional meetings during the year.
