Early Careers in Antennas and Propagation

Working Groups

A strong involvement of early career members is essential for the long term development of EurAAP.

This working  group is composed and led by early career euraap members, with the support group of a limited number of senior members.

The Main Mission
Purpose of the Working Group
The main objectives of the WG will be:

  • To get ECAP members familiar with the operation and the various activities of EurAAP

  • To help ECAP members develop their network and get more visibility

  • To exchange information, opportunities and foster cooperation among ECAP members and with other EurAAP members

  • To support early career researchers in getting grants at local and European level.

  • To propose ideas to the Delegate Assembly that will support a stronger involvement of all early career members, and benefit the community at large.

    The first task of the ECAP will be to set the foundation of its operating rules and organize brainstorming sessions with the supporting members.



2024 TICRA Grant for Early Careers in Antennas and Propagation*

The Early Careers in Antennas and Propagation (ECAP) working group (WG) and TICRA aim to promote and support scholar visits/research secondments among ECAP community that are early career students and professionals on antennas and propagation. These visits are enriching to both visitors and host institutions, favouring knowledge build-up, networking and personal development. With this grant, excellent early careers can benefit from these exchanges with additional support to pursue their activities.
