RE Cluster Workshop and Meetings
The two key RE Cluster groups, the Research Leaders (RL) and Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies (DDoGS) will be meeting at University College Dublin (UCD) from 21-22 March 2017. The U21 Provost, Professor Bairbre Redmond, will open the meeting with a joint session before the two groups hold parallel meetings.
In addition, the DDoGS will be hosting a pre-meeting Workshop at UCD on 20 March 2017 on the theme of ‘The Future of the Doctorate’.
Research Leaders meeting
All senior colleagues directly involved in oversight of research, research impact, collaborations and connections with industry are invited to attend the RL meeting. Best practice will be shared along with discussions covering matters related to global research matters such as international research connections, development opportunities for Early Career Researchers, impact and integrity.
Deans and Directors of Graduate Studies meeting
All senior colleagues directly involved in oversight of Graduate Schools, graduate student experience and mobility are welcome to attend the DDoGS meeting. The group will discuss activities and priorities for graduate development and look to share best practice across the U21 network.
