Workshop on Multi-disciplinary Research Projects in Health
A half day workshop designed to generate valuable insights on navigating the multi-disciplinary research landscape.
Places for this workshop are now full.
There is an increasing recognition of the potential value of interdisciplinarity within academic research.
But..... there are many questions that need to be addressed, for example; how do you accommodate specialist interests and requirements whilst minding the budget? What criteria do you need to consider when choosing a PI? How do you put a new team together with no collaborative track-record?
This half day workshop is designed to generate valuable insights on navigating the multidisciplinary research landscape. Focussing on the field of health and well-being, we will address such issues as:
- Pros and Cons of working in the multi-disciplinary landscape
- Effective use of seed-corn funds
- Working within the EU framework
- Competition vs collaboration
- The funder's perspective of multi-disciplinary studies
- Publication issues-whose paper is it anyway?
Speakers will consist of investigators with experience of leading and working in multi-disciplinary research projects, representatives from Research Institutes and Research Funders. Group work will consist of discussion of specific topics associated with working in a multi-disciplinary environment.
