In March, we had our first Research Café for Emerging Researchers. The café took place in a relaxed atmosphere with soft café music and plenty of coffee and pastries. It facilitated networking, discussion and reflection focused on what it means to be an emerging researcher and how this may differ from an Early Career Researcher.
A lot of interesting discussion emerged surrounding the complexity of identifying with such research categories, as well as the roles of dissemination, self-efficacy, engagement and the importance of being part of a research culture.
Join us for the second Research Café, which will focus on Emerging Researchers and the REF. It will take place on Thursday 19th May 2016, 10-11.30am in EE G164. Book a place on the Staff Portal.
