From 12 to the 16 October, VALIDATE will be holding “Collaboration Week”, 5 days of activities aimed at providing advice on how to build research relationships and perhaps even form new collaborations across the VALIDATE Network.
How to Get Involved
You can support Collaboration Week in the following ways:
- Sign up for the Online Collaboration Workshop. On 13 October Prof Susanna Dunachie (University of Oxford) will be using her personal experience to talk about building successful collaborations, after which you will join fellow VALIDATE members in virtual break-out rooms to discuss how you might be able to work together in new research partnerships.
- Take part in VALIDating, a fun service to help members form research collaborations across institutions, research focus, and continent - a bit like a dating site but rather than finding your soulmate you may find your next research partner. You can set up your profile, listing what you're looking for in a collaboration, by completing the VALIDating Profile Form - and during Collaboration Week you can look through the profiles to find your next ideal research partner.
Get in touch and let us know about any Collaboration Success Stories, especially if you formed a partnership through VALIDATE - firstname.lastname@example.org.
