Cambridge Global Food Security

An Interdisciplinary Research Centre at the University of Cambridge

Studying at Cambridge


Successful networking event for early career researchers

last modified Apr 10, 2018 02:37 PM
Twenty five early career researchers from eight departments across the University met at a networking event yesterday at the McDonald Institute for Archaeological Research.

The event, organised by the Cambridge Global Food Security IRC, gathered together 25 PhD students and Postdocs interested in global food systems from eight departments including Plant Sciences, Chemistry, Development Studies and MRC Epidemiology.

Participants presented their research in two-minute speed talks, where it was clear that many potential connections existed that hadn't yet been made. The talks were followed by informal networking over pizza and drinks, giving everyone the opportunity to get to know each other and share more information about their interests.

We are grateful to the Isaac Newton Trust for their generous support of this event.



More networking to come 

This was the first in a series of three networking events for PhD students and Postdocs at Cambridge University, interested in global food systems and the food industry.

The next event is a training workshop at Robinson College on 16 May, co-organised by Cambridge Global Food Security, CambPlants Hub and the Bioscience Impact team. Registration is now open!

The final event in the series will take place in June, when the participants will have a chance to meet industry representatives and discuss possibilities for collaboration, placements or future careers.
