About Jure

JURE is the network of Junior Researchers of EARLI and dedicated to the interests of all junior researchers in the field of learning and instruction.

The primary aim of our JURE network is to represent and support PhD students on matters that are of interest to them. Furthermore, learning and interaction among junior and senior researchers is a significant goal for JURE.

JURE 2024

24 - 28 June 2024

We are happy to invite all junior researchers of EARLI to present their research at the 28th Conference of the Junior Resarchers of EARLI. We would like to encourage you to submit your research to the JURE conference in order to:

  • Share your research among other researchers
  • Discuss and get useful feedback from international experts in the field of learning and instruction
  • Becoming a part of the network of young researchers in your fields



EARLI is delighted to announce a new pilot funding scheme for JURE members. The scheme is intended to provide successful applicants with funding to cover activities and items needed to develop research opportunities amongst JURE members. We hope that these contributions will provide additional support to JURE research, boost the quality of the research as well as further develop research culture broadly within EARLI. We would strongly welcome collaborative projects amongst JURE members or activities that would showcase EARLI to new potential members.

Applications for the Research Development Fund have now concluded.

Call for Bids


Each year, five JURE members will be given the opportunity to benefit from an international mentoring visit for a period of 2-4 weeks. The mentor, who is an EARLI member and an experienced scholar in his/her respective field, can provide guidance and support to the doctoral student in a variety of themes. This grant is not intended to finance regular PhD-project activities.

Applications for our 2024 Mentoring Grant have now closed. The next call will be launched in early 2025.


JURE membership is aimed at master and PhD students, as well as graduates who have received their doctorate within the last three years.

Being a JURE member allows you to take part in the JURE and EARLI Conferences and meet colleagues from all over Europe. EARLI commits itself to offering junior researchers the opportunity to become actively involved in the association, at a strongly reduced fee (€ 40 per calendar year).



The annual JURE Career Day offers junior researchers the opportunity to engage with questions about and advice on career building and opportunities beyond your PhD. Through direct, informal interaction with senior researchers as well as a number of workshops focusing on career building and corresponding academic skills, we aim to support junior researchers in their academic endeavours.
