What makes for a successful collaborative placement? How can you connect with the organisation you’ve always wanted to work with? One of the most exciting opportunities of being an ESRC-funded student is the chance to undertake a collaborative placement with a non-academic organisation, for up to 3-months. This can be with business, government, or non-profit organisations.
This mini-conference will offer an information and networking opportunity to enable you to make the most of the collaborative placement. At the event, you will learn about ‘collaboration’, hear from students themselves about their experiences of placements, and meet representatives from organisations interested in receiving ESRC-funded students.
We're still confirming the speakers, but at previous collaboration fairs, we’ve been able to welcome representatives from Google, the Bank of England, the United Nations, Oxford Analytica, the IOM, the Institute for Fiscal Studies, Deloitte, Oxford City Football Club, and the Cabinet Office, for instance. Come along and be inspired!
Please note, this event is only for Masters and PHD students from The University of Oxford, Brunel University, and the Open University. Please register using your University email address.
