The University Research Services is inviting academic colleagues to a ‘Meet the Profs’ network event on Friday 16 September 2016 at St Mirren Football Club, Conference Suite.
The UWS Professoriate will host the event which is designed to stimulate inter-disciplinary, cross-disciplinary and inclusive connections between colleagues across the University. The School’s Institute of Healthcare Policy and Practicewill be represented by Professor’s Belinda Dewar for the Dementia and Later Life Research Grouping, Professor Kevin Rooney for the Deteriorating Patient Research Grouping and Professor Jean Rankin for the Maternal, Child and Family Health Research Grouping.
The format of the event is based around short “introductions” by each of the professors with the key objective of showcasing their research interests and the opportunities to collaborate with colleagues across disciplines. There will be distinct networking sessions blocked throughout the day and opportunities for you to meet staff you have not previously met. The event is designed to be stimulating and highly social.
This is the first in a series of Festival of Research events for 2016/17 being run by Research Services. It is hoped that academic staff particularly experienced researchers, early career researchers and those staff who aspire to engage with the new UWS research vision and agenda will attend.
