The objective of the Young Scholars Network of the European Communication Research and Education Association (YECREA) is to give a voice and provide a network within ECREA specifically for the young generation of European Media and Communication scholars. YECREA provides a forum for the segment within ECREA that involves (but is not limited to) doctoral students and post doctoral researchers to inform, assist, share ideas, get peer support and peer-review.

A special emphasis is put on PhD-programme support. YECREA aims to provide a bridge between the young generation and the advanced members of ECREA, to stimulate both communication and collaboration between the two.

YECREA network operates through interaction in a community portal on the web and a mailing list. Also, face-to-face meetings such as annual summer school, workshops and conferences are organised as a part of ECREA and in cooperation with its members.
