Thrive workshops and events

Our interactive programme of events for early and mid-career academic researchers enable you to join with others from academia to explore crucial topics to support you to thrive in all aspects of your professional life.

Development events that help you to thrive

Our online workshop programme is designed to support you to thrive professionally. Thriving happens through having the right skills and perspectives, building good relationship with others, working effectively. We address this through our workshops and events for early and mid-career academic researchers. Each year our events will explore a range of topics to support your professional development, whilst also recognising that it’s important to address personal development to ensure you can thrive both in and out of work. Depending on your needs and interests you can opt to join us for a one-off session, or participate in multiple events. We love to support researchers to build supportive interdisciplinary communities. For this reason our events are interactive and online, so you can expect plenty of opportunities to share experiences and learn from researchers from other organisations and disciplines.

Thrive: spring/summer 2022

From January to July 2022, in our online workshops we will be focusing on:

  • Essentials for project management
  • Putting the ‘buzz’ in your research bids
  • Establishing healthy boundaries
  • Embracing challenge: applying a solutions-focused approach to thrive at work
  • An introduction to Coaching Skills for Research Leaders
  • Active Listening and feedback

These workshops offer a unique opportunity to network and build a community with other researchers and academics from across the UK and internationally
