“Developing the Next Generation of Researchers”

We are members of the Association of Commonwealth Universities. This gives us access to a number of exciting and varied events and opportunities. An upcoming event is “Developing the Next Generation of Researchers” in March, in Ghana.

This event will provide an opportunity for senior academic staff and emerging researchers to explore innovative approaches to professional development and collaboration.  The workshop will be split into two halves: the first two days will be for early career researchers, the last two days for senior staff, and a cross-over day in the middle. Sessions will consist of panel presentations, group activities and discussion.

Please see the ACU website for more information.

ACU also offer Early Career Conference funding grants. These open sometime this month.
