(UPDATE: responding to the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, StrathWide 2020 will now take place in an online format)

StrathWide2020 is a two-day online conference/symposium for Strathclyde assistants, associates and 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 collaborative projects. 

Organised by researchers 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: Each participant will present during a series of rapid-fire 60-second pitches about themselves, their research and their ideas in order to engage with other researchers on new interdisciplinary projects (funding available!!!) no slides needed;
  • Mix 'n' Match: networking sessions with participants from other disciplines to develop new approaches;
  • Insights: new perspectives on Strathclyde's seven strategic themes from leading academics;
  • Pitch Perfect: workshops with mentors from Strathclyde's Entrepreneurial Network to support researchers in developing their projects;
  • Grants to Go: Small starting grants available for conference participants to kick-start their collaborative projects.

Come along to hear from colleagues across the University, share your experience, and create new and exciting collaborations together. Participants will have a chance to apply and be awarded between £1-1.5k in funding with further funding possible, all of which can be added to your Pure profile.

Participants at the early stages of their careers are especially encouraged to apply!

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