Networking Workshop Series
Looking for new collaborators?
Interested in applying for internal Seed Funding at Aalto, but you need to find people outside your department to work with?
Participate in one (or all!) of our networking training events.
Materials and Energy Platforms present a Networking Series to support you to learn about and practice networking skills, like:
- Making connections with people who do work that is relevant to you;
- Improving your ability to communicate what you have to offer (and what the other person needs from you) to a general audience and/or researchers in complementary subjects;
- In the long run, making connections with other researchers that results in productive collaborations, joint publications, and/or applications for funding.
The series consists of five workshops and will be held on Tuesdays from 10–12 at Design Factory. In addition, participants will attend a networking event to put their new skills into practice.
