Take part in Vitae Connections Week 2020 (#VitaeCon2020); a collection of live and on demand opportunities for knowledge and practice sharing, networking and discussion among those with an interest in researcher development globally. The week of online activities will run from 14 to 17 September and will include live-streamed keynote presentations, small-group interactive and discussion sessions, our popular poster session and exhibition area reimagined for remote access, as well as the Vitae 3MT competition 2020 final, sponsored by Taylor & Francis.
#VitaeCon2020 will be an opportunity to celebrate the successes of a rapid transition to remote delivery of researcher development, as well as an opportunity to learn from peers, test out new platforms for online engagement, and consider the long-term implications of COVID-19 for the future of researcher development and research culture. Furthermore, by taking place online, with a mix of closed and open sessions, we are encouraging participation and networking to extend beyond the boundaries of the core programme, through to “fringe” activities and social media engagement. By providing this hub for the researcher development community, we aim to create links across institutions, job roles, countries, and time zones and increase the visibility of researcher development worldwide.
