Interdisciplinary Networking for Early Career Researchers

Building a thriving community and culture in which interdisciplinary research can happen more readily is a core strategy for CIDIR, and we work in concert with several other networks (in particular conservation and immunology) to offer interdisciplinary networking events  for early career researchers with an interest in biomedical research areas.

Our events aim to:

  • Provide informal speed networking/social networking opportunities among early career researchers who work in or have an interest in biomedical/veterinary/biosciences research topics. 
  • Provide skills focused networking workshops to promote integrative thinking and creative problem-solving approaches 
  • Provide leadership seminars from researchers who have developed their careers in mixed discipline environments.

Our overarching goal in providing opportunities to to empower early career researchers to consider interdisciplinary approaches to their work, by fostering trust, creative thinking, curiosity, a willingness to debate openly and a mutual respect and language across disciplines.

Events are advertised on the main events page.
