PhD Workshop - Intellectual Property Rights Considerations
The session is devoted to looking into the issues related to Intellectual Property (IP) Rights. The session will cover general information on IP rights but will also consider procedural aspects for how IP from your research work may be identified, protected and commercialised. The session will look at:
- the different types of IP and their purpose;
- procedures for obtaining and controlling IP rights;
- who might own the IP in your research;
- university policies and procedures for protecting and commercialising IP;
The development of skills addressed in the session fits into the following sections of the Vitae RDF:
PhD Workshop: Getting the Job You Want After Finishing Your PhD
- C1: Professional Conduct
- C2: Research Management
- C3: Finance, funding, Resources.
Continuing in academia or looking for a job in the industry requires an up-to-date CV as well as skills on how to succeed in interviews and applications. In this workshop we will look at 3 different aspects of further employability: Resume Construction, Interview Techniques, and Networking skills
This workshop is led by Robin Huggins, Director of MBN Academy. Rob draws upon 20 years’ experience as an expert Data Talent practitioner, including delivering The Data Lab’s MSc. Placement Programme for the last few years, therefore having the right skillset to explain these aspects from a recruitment side.
Education Workshop: Post-Pandemic Computing Science Education.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to re-think how we deliver our teaching and assessment. And, while the circumstances that required us to adapt our practice were far from ideal, some of the resulting innovations in our methods have had a positive impact. In this session, we'll hear from colleagues about the new approaches to delivering CS education that have emerged during the pandemic and are here to stay, even as we recover from the impact of COVID-19.
Build Your Own: Bricolage for Blended Spaces
This workshop aims to advocate the benefits of methodological bricolage, where the researcher tailors tasks, tools, and approaches to understand the subject at hand. We will explore the creative process of reimagining the research frameworks, using the theory and practice of Blended Spaces. The workshop will specifically benefit those researchers, dealing with non-standard topics, where the current methodological frameworks are either insufficient or nonexistent.
Early Career Research Panel Session
You’re somewhere along the way on the long journey to earning your PhD and graduation still seems a long way off, but now is the perfect time to start planning for what happens next. This session will look at options for PhD graduates who are intending to continue into early career research roles. A wide variety of career steps exist, including going straight into an academic role, an independent research fellowship, a research associate working on a specific project, knowledge transfer, the emerging research software engineering. In this panel session you will hear the perspectives of early career researchers who have followed these different paths and the impact it has had on their careers.
