MIRIAD event

Opportunities for Postgraduate Researchers and Early Career Researchers
at MIRIAD, Righton Building, 10.00 am - 5.00 pm, 23 May 2012

PARC North West is holding an exciting regional event to give PGRs, ECRs and their Supervisors the opportunity to generate a series of funded, cross-institutional events for the rest of this Academic Year. If you have an event idea already, or would like to be involved in one, this is your opportunity to develop it with your peers. These ideas can be topic or disciplinary based, specific or broad in nature, PARC North West is here to support your events.

With lunch and refreshments, the event will feature:

1) The 'Event Generator' is a creative process to develop the new events

This creative activity is based on 'Open Space Technology' to generate ideas. It is a powerful way to lead any kind of organisation in everyday practice and extraordinary change. All who participate will be able to develop their own ideas or join with others. Together we will then transform these ideas into one or more events in the coming months.

2) Introduction to what PARC NW is and what it can offer

3) Introduction to the Skills Development Programme

Designed for and by the region's students, the programme aims to support PGRs and ECRs working with non-academic partners to build their skills, expertise and networks. It will help them to identify new knowledge exchange opportunities, disseminate their research findings and enhance their long-term career potential. The programme will run between October 2012 and and September 2013, and is open to any postgraduate or early career researcher from the North West region and beyond.
