Take a few minutes to fill out our survey

One of the key aims of this community is to listen to and communicate the issues that particularly affect ECAs in research and academia, who otherwise often feel they have no way of voicing their concerns.

The survey covers topics such as job and financial insecurity, imposed mobility, lack of research freedom, and the result of these pressures on economic and mental wellbeing

We hope that by highlighting the widespread and intensive pressures that ECAs face we can start a dialog with employers, research and funding institutes and supervisors so that these issues might be better addressed.

ECA is a grassroots initiative of the European Association of Archaeologists, designed to listen to, and communicate the issues that particularly affect early career archaeologists
