In Detail

Are you looking to generate new research ideas and proposals? These multidisciplinary events bring together researchers from different fields to share their expertise, generate new ideas and proposals, and develop their research skills.

These workshops are typically focused on a specific research theme or challenge that is relevant to the attendees. Attendees give presentations on their own research and participate in brainstorming sessions to generate new ideas and proposals. Our facilitators help to guide the discussions and ensure that the goals of the workshop are met.

We help participants network with one another, share ideas, and form collaborations. They often receive feedback on their ideas and proposals and have the opportunity to evaluate the ideas of their peers.

Many research sandpit workshops include information on funding opportunities that can support the development of new research proposals. After the workshop, follow-up activities can be organised such as additional workshops and networking sessions.

What exactly is a Talkshop?

We're glad you asked! Simply put, a Talkshop is a cross between a talk and a workshop. They're short, punchy, thought-provoking sessions. We take a key concept and explain it clearly, then help your team explore it together to understand how it can help them in their work.
