UCT to host second Research Forum

21 August 2023 | Professor Sue Harrison

Dear academic and research staff, and postdoctoral researchers

As part of our current initiatives to build a supportive research environment at the University of Cape Town (UCT), we launched the Research Forum earlier this year. This is an opportunity for researchers across UCT to come together to discuss key matters influencing their research environment as well as to meet, interact and network with each other.

In our first Research Forum in June 2023, we shared much information about the research support offices and environment at UCT and were pleased to receive your inputs on aspects of this. As many have expressed the value of the information shared, please find the slides from the event, capturing much of this.

On Thursday, 24 August 2023, we will hold our second Research Forum at 16:00 in the New Learning Centre Lecture Theatre, Anatomy Building, Faculty of Health Sciences. As part of being inclusive, we are moving our venue across the UCT footprint, getting us all to visit different parts of our university.

The focus of this forum will be to update our research community on the progress with our ongoing research support transformation project – aimed at building improved research support at UCT. We would like to share our findings, our interventions to date and our plans as well as receive your responses.

A calendar invitation was sent to all academic and research staff, as well as postdoctoral researchers. Please accept the calendar invite to confirm your attendance. Please do join us, hear what we are doing and add your input to assist us to plan to suit your needs even more effectively.

For more information, please contact Berenice Hendricks.

With warm regards

Professor Sue Harrison
Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Research and Internationalisation
