Next week sees the launch of a series of Research Cafés at GCU. A Research Café is an informal opportunity for staff, students, and the public to meet and talk about GCU research.
Each Café will have two contributors, who will each give a short talk and then lead a discussion about their area of research. The other participants – other researchers, staff, students, or members of the public – can join the conversation at any table, choose to change to another table, or leave at any time. Research Cafés are informal events that won’t bring any additional admin to contributors or participants – you need only turn up for the hour, and enjoy a free coffee, or tea, and biscuit!
The Cafés are part of a wider University ‘research sandscape’ initiative intended to seed and nurture connections between researchers from different disciplines and encourage them to generate novel ideas for the Mission Oriented Research support call MORE@GCU.
The Cafés will be held in the Relax and Renew Space in the Sir Alex Ferguson Library and the dates and times for the first 4 are:
- Monday 31 October @ Noon – 1pm
- Wednesday 16 November @ Noon – 1pm
- Friday 2 December @ 10am – 11am
- Wednesday 14 December @ 11am – Noon
