Connecting and collaborating with people outside of academia can increase the impact of your research, enhance your skills and help you follow your professional aspirations.
The OGR would like to make connecting easier and are undertaking a project with Flinders Digital Research Services (DRS) to identify a potential solution. Phase one of the project involved gathering the perspectives of the industry to understand what they value in connecting, how they like to connect and what is currently happening in their industry. The insights that arose from this investigation have been consolidated into a short report which is now available in FLO REST.
The next stage of the project is to gather the perspectives of HDR students. To start this process, a survey has been created seeking information about what HDR students aspire to achieve through their degree, what they find valuable in connecting with people outside of academia and what Flinders could do to support connections. Everyone’s viewpoint is important and we are seeking input from all disciplines, stages of candidature, backgrounds and future aspirations.
The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete and you can enter a draw to win one of two $50 visa vouchers.
We are also looking for people who would be keen to explore this topic with us in more detail. If you would like to be part of a focus group/ interview, please enter your name where indicated in the survey.
