Research Week: Networking for Success
Tuesday, Nov. 22, 3-6:30 p.m.
Informal conversations at events or trade shows with industry and funders can be daunting for researchers. This event will address topics such as how to convey the importance and impact of research to non-technical folks. And how to “work the room” to build a supportive network that might lead to collaboration opportunities.
During this session, you will hear from Kraken Robotics, Newfoundland Power Inc. and Bounce Health Innovations about their successes, challenges and best practices when it comes to networking with the research community. This will be followed by a workshop facilitated by Dr. Dawn Henwood that will provide faculty and graduate students with an experiential learning opportunity to build and explore their networking skills. The workshop will include a blend of theory, targeted skill development, hands-on practice, and reflection. As part of the session, participants will engage in a simulation of a networking event, followed by a debrief.
This event is open to faculty, staff, and graduate students. Food and beverages will be provided.
