The Senate Room
Purpose of PGR Townhall meetings: To share ideas, learning experiences
from across the University, to inform future policy and practice.
Event themes: How do we support researchers to build their professional networks during their research degree? What are the internal and external opportunities and are they open and inclusive to all? What are the barriers? Are we making best use of our alumni and industry networks? What support do researchers and their supervisors need for this?
The event will include lunch, talks and small group discussions, with a focus on sharing of ideas and formulating practical actions.
