Learning about opportunities at the 4th CATCH Networking Lunch

The fourth CATCH Networking Lunch was held in the Diamond on Monday 14th March where more than 30 academics, researchers and professional services staff networked at the event. Beside welcoming new academic members, many of our academics and researchers took advantage of our networking lunch to catch up with other members and discuss collaboration and innovation over a tempting selection of buffet food.

Following the buffet, Dr. Peter Cudd was talking about the upcoming AAATE2017 conference to be hosted by the University of Sheffield in the Diamond in September 2017.

This talk was followed by a presentation of Anneliese Fraser about “How to join The Conversation”, an independent, not-for-profit media outlet that uses content sourced from the academic and research community – ideal to publish opinion pieces.

The last presentation by Simon Butler, Centre Manager for CATCH, promoted the current vacancies as Chair/Reader at CATCH in Health Services Research, as Chair/Reader in Machine Learning and the CATCH Innovation Vouchers.

“The CATCH Innovation Vouchers are a unique opportunity to start a new collaboration. I am excited to solve a new real world problem.” Said Dr. Steven Potter, a CATCH translational researcher who will be one of the translational researchers who will work on CATCH Innovation Vouchers.

For more information about the CATCH Innovation Vouchers, please download the flyer.
