Research Forums


Faculty Research Forums are designed to be informal and Faculty-focused, with the format facilitating open discussion and ideas exchange between academic researchers and graduate research students.  
The forums run on Tuesdays from 1-2pm, and you are encouraged to bring along your lunch and participate in the themed discussion. Presentations will not exceed 40 minutes in total to allow enough time for discussion. The program will include presentations from Faculty centres and iGroups, as well as research forum sessions for individual presenters. Presentation dates, themes, topics and speakers will be advertised to the Faculty research community by email.
