Call for presentations!

We are looking for research mentoring and KED partnerships to give short pecha-kucha style presentations (10 slides in 5 minutes) for our final event of the academic year on Thursday 3rd July 2014.

The aim of the event is to hold a small symposium that shares and disseminates these projects. Alongside these presentations, there will also be other talks in this format to keep the event fast-paced, informal and fun.

We invite you to:

  • share your experiences
  • reflect on your partnership
  • discuss knowledge exchange

Within the 5 minutes we encourage you to do this in any creative ways that you feel are appropriate.

Deadline for applications: 09th June 2014

Research Mentoring Initiative launch

The BIAD Research Mentoring Initiative has now officially launched! Through a successful induction event held at the School of Art, Margaret Street, both mentors and mentees were able to meet each other and engage in discussion over tea, coffee and cake.

We are please to announce that there are 18 researchers taking part in the initiative, forming 9 partnerships overall. Those involved include PhD researchers at various stages of their study, recently completed students (Early Career Researchers) and those actively thinking about embarking on PhD study at BIAD.

There are researchers from a multitude of rich and diverse backgrounds from School of Jewellery, School of Art and Parkside campuses, incorporating home, EU and overseas students and practitioners across a range of disciplines from Philosophy to Typography, Fine Art and Idea Management.

We wish all of our mentoring partnerships the best of luck and look forward to hearing about how they are developing!
