How to: Knowledge Exchange 

November 2021 TBC

 

Engaging in Knowledge Exchange activities during your PhD is a great opportunity not only to create impact with your research but also to expand the possibilities of your degree and shape it in a way that reflects your personal and professional aspirations. 

There are so many different activities that you can design as part of this, from creating arts and cultural activities to delivering research consultancies and contributing to public policy. 

In this session we are going to explore the KE opportunities available and hear from PhD colleagues in the consortium who are currently delivering a variety of KE activities as part of a NWCDTP or external placement scheme. 

We will also hear from Prof. Jerome De Groot, NWCDTP Director, about his own experience with KE and the value it has brought to his career as an academic and HE professional.
