RRING to host first virtual networking event for Community members (September 10)
By Graham UCC on August 11, 2021 in Events, News, RRING NEWS, Workshops & Training
RRING Community will host its first free virtual networking event for its members on Friday, September 10.
With this workshop, RRING is seeking to engage with its community with a view to expanding on specific interests and topics by connecting its members directly with one another.
The event will provide a valuable networking opportunity for our members, a chance to engage directly with other RRING participants around issues that are salient to them in a professional capacity.
The workshop bring together stakeholders from across the QH around a topic of their choosing. The goal is to begin a process of attempting to build sub-groups / cells / networks / sub-committees on these issues within RRING.
Ultimately, the long-term objective would be to enable and facilitate co-creation and mutual learning through sub-groups or committees under the RRING Community banner. Potential outputs of such collaborative efforts could produce outputs including (but not limited to):
- Future research projects
- Identify and apply for Funding calls to support research projects
- Produce papers on common themes of interest
- Conduct Science Diplomacy or Advocate to Policy either nationally or internationally.
- Produce position statement
- Decide on / organise training that benefits the group
There are two sessions on the morning of September 10 – one from 9:30 – 10:30 CEST and a second from 10:45-11:45 CEST. Participants will be allowed select two preferred topics for their breakout room sessions via the registration form on Eventbrite.
Session 1: Global Challenges
- Climate change
- COVID 19
- Artificial Intelligence
Session 2: Pillars of Responsible Research & Innovation
- Open science
- Gender Equality
- Ethics Integrity
- Citizen and Public engagement
A facilitator will chair each session , to quickly assist the group to determine common areas of interest within the theme, based on the group wide expertise, and to then determine what the group could collectively work together on.
We look forward to welcoming you and beginning our collective journey of mutual learning and collaboration.
