Panel Discussion and MaynoothSparks 2023 Events

Wednesday, October 25, 2023 - 10:00 to 12:30
Training room C&D, Library

The Research Development Office is once again hosting MaynoothSparks during Research week:  This year the broad theme is “Collaboration”, and we’ll have a range as speakers with interesting stories to tell about what Collaboration means to them and their work.  Each speaker will have 6 minutes for their talk and be limited to maximum of 12 slides, which will make for a fast-moving, diverse, and enjoyable event.

Panel Discussion on Collaboration:
Prior to the talks, we will host a short panel discussion on the nitty-gritty of Collaboration.  This will focus on finding partners and identifying the necessary expertise, and the barriers of disciplinary norms & languages and how to overcome them to really make collaborative projects fly.  The panel will include Dr Nicola Mountford, School of Business and Prof Seán Doyle, Dept of Biology who work together on the NeoSepsis ‘Health’ Sustainable Development Goal Challenge’.  It will also include Dr John Dooley, Dept of Electrical Engineering, as well as Dr Galyna Otlyvanska, an Economist and displaced researcher from the Ukraine who collaborate in the area of next generation telecommunications  (6G and beyond).   The panel discussion will be moderated by Ciara Cotter, Public Affairs Manager, SFI.

Places are limited so book your tickets here.  The same ticket will give you access to either or both MaynoothSparks 2023 events.
