Driving Innovation in Healthcare Research

20th Jun 2017 - 11:00am - 3:00pm

Faculty of Health and Social Care

Driving Innovation in Healthcare Research – Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI)

Professor Sally Spencer and colleagues from the Postgraduate Medical Institute (PGMI) will convene and facilitate the Research Catalyst which will provide opportunities for knowledge exchange, networking and new research collaborations in an informal and relaxed format.

The aim of the Research Catalyst is to facilitate the cross-fertilisation of new research initiatives in health by bringing together researchers from diverse academic backgrounds to identify opportunities for collaboration. The session will introduce the concept of broad interdisciplinarity from the perspective of health research.

The facilitators welcome academics at all stages of their careers, including those from disciplines which are not traditionally associated with health research. The catalyst will aim to support research ideas for new PhD studentships, as well as projects aimed at both internal and external funding.
