Wednesday 29 April, 12pm-2pm, MP203 (CEBE Boardroom)
Listen to others as they talk, and think how you could use their ideas and approaches: what questions would you ask them?
The format will be fast paced! Everyone will get the chance to speak for 2 minutes (you will be timed!), then the ‘dating’ will commence.
The goal of the Research Speed Dating event is to meet people, find out what’s going on in CEBE in terms of research, broaden connections, foster dialogue, increase cross-School interactions and build research relationships within the Faculty…and, in a few cases, beyond!
Come prepared to talk! Two minutes isn’t long, so what would you say to friends and family when asked “what’s your research about?” – A common question for all labelled as “researchers”. So – headlines of exactly what your focus is, who would benefit from your work, what’s innovative about it? If you want, bring an “artefact” to show – though not a PowerPoint or similar presentation, and don’t expect any additional time to show or play with it!
