The results from earlier surveys have attracted great interest from, for example, universities and the Ministry of Education and Culture. The 2020 survey revealed areas where improvement is still needed in the working conditions and orientation of early-career researchers. You can explore the report from the previous survey titled ‘ At A Career Crossroads: Survey for Early Career Researchers Conducted by FUURT In 2020–2021here. 

The 2024 survey is being conducted through co-operation with the Research Foundation for Studies and Education Otus sr. All responses will be processed with absolute confidentiality and the results will be reported anonymously based on averages. 

The respondents of the survey may participate in a drawing for 3 sets of Finnkino movie vouchers (each set of 4 tickets is valued at €53).
