The Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation holds a large workshop on 24 October, where it welcomes all current, past and future partners in the Industrial Doctoral School. During the day, interested parties can also meet doctoral students who show off their projects in the form of posters in Café KBC.

“The workshop is a really important interaction point so that everyone in the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation has the opportunity to meet and discuss. It is in the interaction that new ideas are born. Our doctoral students also present their research projects on posters in Café KBC so that all employees can come and see what we do,” Professor Anna Linusson, Director of the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation at Umeå University informs us.

Since 2008, the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation has registered 66 doctoral students in research projects across a wide range of subjects, in collaboration with external partners from the business community, the public sector or community organisations.

The workshop, which is organised by the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation’s coordinator Benkt Wiklund every two years, intends to bring together all doctoral students, academic supervisors and external parties for a full day under a specific theme. This is the third workshop in the series.

This year’s theme Outreach and collaboration – for which and for what purpose? aims to open discussions on how joint efforts and collaboration in research is being conducted. Together, the participants will address the strengths and weaknesses of research collaborations, and how to make them successful, along with the role of the Industrial Doctoral School for Research and Innovation as a collaborative platform for the training of future academic researchers.

“I hope for some new challenging thoughts and discussions. The workshop has an exciting theme about research collaborations. Then it would be great if many people stopped by and checked out the poster exhibition, so that more people can see and hear about the research the doctoral students are conducting,” remarks Anna Linusson.

Lectures and discussions are held in English and the moderator is Anna Linusson.
