Next session: Thursday 25 November, 11.30 – 12.30

SAQN is pleased to welcome you to our online networking sessions – an informal, regular opportunity to meet others in the community, exchange ideas and find out what’s happening. We know that interdisciplinary working takes time, and we want to offer a space for these interactions to happen ‘little and often’ rather than waiting to meet at an in-person conference.

What’s involved?

We start our session in Zoom with a series of lightning pitches – just 60 seconds to tell the group about something you’d be interested in chatting about. It could be an interesting paper, a funding opportunity you know of, a request for collaborators or feedback, something interesting from your recent research – anything you’d like to have a conversation about with others. If you would like to offer a pitch at the meeting, just sign up on the registration form.

We’ll then move over to Wonder, where it’s easier to have more fluid conversations with the group. If the idea of networking makes you nervous, you are not alone! We know it can be nerve-wracking, and we’ll be working hard to make it pain-free and useful to you. The session is just for an hour, but you’ll be welcome to stay and network more over lunch if you like.

If you haven’t used Wonder before, it’s very simple and no sign up is required. You can familiarise yourself with the platform in advance with these slides to help you navigate the system.

We hope you’ll sign up to join us at the next session! If you have any questions, please email fleur.hughes@york.ac.uk
