Need new collaborators? Too busy for traditional networking?
Practice your 3-minute “elevator speech” as you participate in a fast-paced, fun event meant to expose you to the research on campus and inspire you to establish new, productive relationships. Researchers will share their topics in an accelerated fashion with a group of researchers sharing similar interests.
Interested attendees must register for their respective events. Seats are limited. Some preparation required—an inquiring mind and willingness to talk to others are a must!
The basic structure of the event is as follows. Each registered attendee will have exactly 3 minutes to present information about his/her research. The presentation may address ongoing and/or planned projects. Highlight projects that require collaboration across disciplines. Remember that your audience may not be familiar with your field, so a brief explanation of the context of your research is recommended. NO POWER POINTS ARE ALLOWED, BUT IMAGES MAY BE SUBMITTED IN ADVANCE IF NECESSARY TO UNDERSTAND YOUR PRESENTATION. An egg timer will be used to time each presentation, and each presenter will have to sit down at the end of 3 minutes, even if in the middle of a sentence. A reception will follow for networking and following up with participants.
