Tricks of the trade with Alan Wilson: Ideas for generating interdisciplinary research
Convened and presented by Sir Alan Wilson, Chief Executive, The Alan Turing Institute
The challenges facing researchers are increasingly interdisciplinary. In this talk, Alan Wilson will present a view of the foundations of research planning which will support originality and ambition within interdisciplinary frameworks. He will discuss both basic and applied research ('real challenges') and will introduce the idea of super concepts that cross disciplines. Above all, he will argue that 'thinking outside the box' can generate new ideas and open up new territories. EVENT FULLY BOOKED: Waiting List in operation
