Professional Development Workshop: Weaving Research & Society

March 22, 2024 @ 9:30 am – 11:30 am, Witherspoon Student Center, Room 201

The Global One Health Academy, Genetics & Genomics Academy, and Genetic Engineering & Society Center are co-hosting a workshop on Weaving Research & Society. This event will provide training on societal engagement in science. Attendees will be introduced to the why of societal engagement, the trajectory of societal engagement (science co-production), and the next phases of societal engagement (deliberative science). A case study will allow attendees to explore in small groups how to frame research problems and explore the FAIR and CARE principles of responsible and inclusive research.

This workshop is part of a series of monthly Interdisciplinary Professional Development Workshops to help graduate students prepare for a career in interdisciplinary research. Graduate students from any disciplinary background are welcome to attend!
