According to the European Charter for researchers, a “Young researcher / Early career researcher” is a researcher during the first five years (full-time equivalent) of their research activity, including the research training period. This can be considered up to 35 years of age. Please note that this category is not eligible to present papers in the ENCATC Research Session.

According to the European Charter, an experienced researcher is a researcher with at least four years of research experience (full-time equivalent) after obtaining a university degree giving them access to doctoral studies in the country in which the university degree was obtained, or researchers already holding a doctorate, regardless of the time taken to obtain this doctorate degree. This can be considered someone aged 35+.

The emerging researcher has no limit of age. Emerging researchers are eligible to present their papers to the Research Session.
