StrathWide 2019

main content

StrathWide is a one-day conference/symposium for assistants/associates/fellows from all job families (research/teaching/knowledge exchange) which aims to promote new collaborations across Faculties.  The conference provides cutting-edge keynote talks, networking opportunities and access to funding support for new collaboration projects. 

Organised by reserachers for researchers, participants will share their ideas for interdisciplinary projects to address Strathclyde's seven strategic themes and find partners to make it a reality. Sessions will include:

  • Ideas into action: a series of rapid-fire 60s pitches from researchers about themselves and their ideas (no slides needed);
  • Mix 'n' Match: networking sessions with other disciplines to develop new apporaches;
  • Insights: new perpectives on Strathclyde's seven strategic themes from leading academics;
  • Pitch Perfect: workshops with mentors from Strathclyde's Entrepreneural Network to support researchers in developing their research;
  • Grants to Go: Small starting grants for collaborators to kick-start their project.

"The best thing about StrathWIDE2018 was learning about the importance of communicating [one’s] own research to the wider academic community."
