Making interdisciplinary research work – thoughts from the field


Date: May 12th, 2014.

Time: 12:00-14:00

Venue: Rumme Shaw Building 205, The University of Hong Kong

Speakers: Dr Susan Bridges, Dr Lap Ki Chan, Dr Brian Chung and Dr Olga Zayts

In this interactive seminar, panel members from Social Sciences and Medical Sciences will reflect upon how we have drawn on cross-disciplinary synergies to conduct General Research Fund (GRF) and other funded interdisciplinary studies. We shall explore the effects upon the research process of working across paradigmatic boundaries – from team forming to grant writing and project data collection, analyses and dissemination. Importantly for those wishing to undertake interdisciplinary studies in the future, we will discuss the academic benefits of interdisciplinary work in our research careers.

All are welcome!
