Traditionally researchers have worked either alone or in small research teams. Research councils and funding bodies, however, increasingly expect researchers to work in cognate subject disciplines to enable a cross-fertilisation of ideas and expertise. But how do you network effectively and set up successful collaborations? Organised by the Research Excellence Training Team (RETT), this session will look at how you network and make the most of the opportunities you have.
