1) Development of Research Culture Projects & Events Across Programmes


  • Research seminars:

    Seminars are evening events, offering an opportunity for staff and students to present and discuss their research. The aim is to support an exchange of information about research within the institute, promote discussion and give staff and students an opportunity to practice conference papers and presentations.

    Research seminars are usually offered free of charge and some may incur a fee.

    This involves 3 days of research workshops at MI. This event offers research training opportunities to staff and students in all programmes, serves as a a resource to the research programmes, and develops research awareness within MI. Students and staff are offered reduced fee places, to incentivise attendance.
