Outreach and collaboration – for whom and for what purpose?

Time Thursday 24 October, 2019 at 08:30 - 16:30
Place Lilla Hörsalen, KBC building at Umeå University.

This biannual workshop welcomes all current and former collaborating partners in the Industrial Doctoral School, IDS, at Umeå University. Since 2008, IDS has enrolled 66 PhD candidates in research projects within a wide range of disciplines, all in collaboration with external partners from industry, public sector and societal organizations.

This year’s workshop Outreach and collaboration – for whom and for what purpose? aims at promoting discussions on how research collaborations are put into practice. Together we will address strengths and weaknesses of research collaborations, how to make them successful and the role IDS as a collaborative platform for education of future researchers.
