Work together, create impact
ll colleagues are invited to register their interest in a one-day networking event to explore how we can work together to make a greater impact on society. View the full programme here.
‘Work together, create impact’ is a new all-Research Network in-person event to bring together everyone in the University who is interested, personally or professionally, in our seven areas of multidisciplinary research, whether they be researchers, knowledge exchange practitioners, professional services colleagues or postgraduate research students. If you cannot attend in person, a recording will be available after the event.
The event will include keynote and plenary sessions, network talks, breakaway rooms, exhibition networking space and refreshments.
What are the Research Networks and what do they do?
The first network was created in 2019 and there are currently seven research networks:
- Healthy Ageing and Care
- Creative Industries
- Sustainable and Resilient Futures
- Migration and Refugees
- Children and Young People
- Artificial Intelligence and Data Analysis
- Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The networks are forging new collaborations within the University, and beyond, seeking to promote multidisciplinary research across all Faculties and schools of thought and, ultimately, we aim to do this in a way that addresses global challenges.
Everyone is eligible to join the Research Networks, and at the event you’ll discover how you can be part of the network membership, which currently includes Early Career Researchers, mid-career and senior academics; professional services staff; and postgraduate research students.
Making a difference through connecting and working together is the spirit of the Brookes Research, Innovation and Knowledge Exchange (RIKE) Networks.
Celebrating new beginnings
This event is the first of its kind for Brookes, bringing together everyone from across the University - every Faculty, Directorate and postgraduate programme.
We are delighted to be hosting this event shortly after the launch of our new Research, Innovation & Enterprise Directorate, which is led by Professor Simonetta Manfredi, formerly Chair of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Network and Associate Dean for Research & Knowledge Exchange in Oxford Brookes Business School.
