Attending a conference is not just about presenting a paper or listening to exciting panel discussions. One of the most important aspects of conference-going is networking. This workshop is part of the Researcher Development Programme.


Who you meet and how you engage with them determines your chances of working with others in the future, creates the potential for collaborative projects and, in general, affects how you are known and thought of within a larger circle. The development of a network is one of the pillars of academic success, and there are many ways in which to foster its growth.

This workshop will provide you with the tools and practical experience to tackle any networking situation more effectively (and with higher confidence) and you will learn how to best lead and participate in collaborative work. Moreover, this workshop will provide the tools for and inspire discussion on engaging in effective online-only networking during these difficult times.
