Building Research Networks
Time & Location
About the Event
As the old saying goes – “It’s not what you know that counts, it’s who you know”, which, in the modern professional environment, means building a net that works. As FLFs you are establishing yourself as a leader in your field, and that leadership often manifests through your networks.
Once upon a time this network was built upon the face-to-face connections that academics made – especially at conferences. However, the current climate means that these opportunities may be harder to come by – and we may have to be more proactive than before; even more so if as a FLF you are new to the UK.
For all this, we live in a very connected world. Yet, for many in the research community, ‘networking’ is still not an easy or natural thing to do.
In this focussed and interactive webinar, through discussion, some simple models and ideas and peer support we’ll explore:
- how you might build a stronger network,
- how you might raise your profile in a way that aligns with your research vision and values
- how you could establish and foster new research connections – even without face-to-face conferences and events.
Whatever your level of networking expertise and comfort, this is a session designed to make you think and offer productive strategies as to how your net might work better.
