Creating connections and rediscovering joy
UK and ROI National Postdoc Appreciation Week presents: UK NPAW 2023 – Creating connections and rediscovering joy.
Monday 18th September 2023, 10:30 AM (GMT)
What is a “Postdoc”? How similar/different is this across different disciplines, and with the increased focus on interdisciplinary research, how can we communicate and connect across divides? Come explore with us in this event, kicking start with a comedic take on this topic by Dave Chauner, followed by conversations and discussion panel led by Dr Ian Sabroe and Dr Dieter Declercq, hosts of the podcast ‘Conversations about Arts, Humanities and Health’, on how to create collaborative environments, break preconceived ideologies, and rediscover the joy that drive us on with what we do.
