Build a grant-winning team, over coffee
9.30-11am (including morning tea)
Impactful, field-advancing and dogma-disrupting research is often a result of cooperation between researchers from different fields. Teams are more likely to win grants and to produce impactful research when their co-investigators span across groups, disciplines and career stages. Are you a scholar seeking to engage with cross-disciplinary research and funding opportunities? Would you like the chance to meet others across and beyond your discipline? Who knows what connections you might find? Join us over coffee, meet other scholars, learn about their research directions, ideas and challenges ... and build a grant-winning team!
Collaborators beyond ANU are welcome. Feel free to invite your contacts.
Opportunities and support for transformative research teams
11.00am - 12.00pm (followed by lunch)
Meet your support team leads at Innovation ANU and the Business Commercialisation and Engagement BEC Team, Keats Nelms and Karen Jackson. This will include a short presentation on the support offered at ANU, followed by a round table discussion on enabling EMCRs to be successful in the transformative research space. The main focus will be on supporting and incentivising all ANU staff to work innovatively and collaboratively by enabling teams to build and gain funding and inform beneficial solutions for society.
Reflect and brainstorm on what EMCRs need
12.30pm - 2.00pm (includes afternoon tea)
Brainstorm what success for transformative research teams looks like and what outstanding support and opportunities EMCRs need to get there. This session will give you the opportunity to connect with others; reflect on what you and your teams need to be successful, and contribute to improving the ANU so that it better enables early and mid-career academics to be successful so that they can lead a better future.
