The session is an open networking event with attendees invited to speak around a theme, for around two minutes.

Why attend?

This networking is open to all looking to meet new people from different sectors. Attendees will include a mixture of academics from universities, as well as representatives from industry and other sectors.

There will be a short expert talk, and a quick highlight made of the many types of collaborations that can occur from the relationships that can be formed (e.g. collaborative research, to knowledge exchanges and student placements).

If you have ever been curious about working with a University, this is a relaxed opportunity to find out more. The majority of government funding for R&D goes to collaborations.

There is limited availability, but if you have any queries, please contact Ehren Milner, (emilner@bournemouth.ac.uk) Research Facilitator, for Bournemouth University.
