Course Detail

DC101 - 1st year PhD day: Maximising the Impact of Conferences and Networking

Networking and collaborations are the lifeblood of research. In order to maximise the impacts of your work it is vital that you disseminate it effectively, and also that you start to foster collaborative links, both within research and more widely. This session, facilitated by Dr. Steve Hutchinson, will help you to explore how to do this in the right way for you and your work.

The afternoon session will allow you to put your networking skills into practice whilst focusing on work life balance and the early stages of your PhD.

To gain skills points students will be required to sign into both the morning and the afternoon session.

Why you should attend:
The course will provide a great networking opportunity to share experiences with your peers and maintain contact with Queen Mary's supportive research community.

This is a Doctoral College course. For any questions please contact: doctoralcollege@qmul.ac.uk


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • network more effectively
  • build collaborative links within their field
  • get the most out of conferences
  • start to grow a network that will potentially maximise the impact of their work
