Description

StrathWide 2019
main content
StrathWide is a one-day conference/symposium for assistants/associates/fellows from all job families (research/teaching/knowledge exchange) which aims to promote new collaborations across Faculties. The conference provides cutting-edge keynote talks, networking opportunities and access to funding support for new collaboration projects.

Organised by reserachers for researchers, participants will share their ideas for interdisciplinary projects to address Strathclyde's seven strategic themes and find partners to make it a reality. Sessions will include:

Ideas into action: a series of rapid-fire 60s pitches from researchers about themselves and their ideas (no slides needed);
Mix 'n' Match: networking sessions with other disciplines to develop new apporaches;
Insights: new perpectives on Strathclyde's seven strategic themes from leading academics;
Pitch Perfect: workshops with mentors from Strathclyde's Entrepreneural Network to support researchers in developing their research;
Grants to Go: Small starting grants for collaborators to kick-start their project.
Please register using the registration form and pay the £10 conference fee (non-refundable) via the Online Shop.

Make sure you have a look at the Agenda_Strathwide2019, which will be updated prior to the day.

Come along to hear from colleagues across the University, share your experience, and create new and exciting collaborations together. Participants will have a chance to be awarded between £1-1.5k in funding with further funding possible, all of which can be added to your Pure profile.

Participants at the early stages of their careers are especially encouraged to apply!
