If your research involves language in some way, you’d be mad not to come to our free speed-networking event from 5-7pm on Thurs 25 October in Room LR4 (to the right of the main foyer) at the Department of Engineering. The event, part of the Cambridge Language Sciences initiative, will bring together young researchers from diverse academic disciplines to discuss their research and potential cross-departmental collaborations.

What is speed networking?

Just like speed-dating, but less nerve-wracking because you know what to talk about! You and another researcher explain your work to each other, then you brainstorm ideas for possible collaborations and then you move on to someone else.

Sounds like thirsty work!

It’s intense, but great fun, and don’t worry, there will be plenty of breaks for drinks and nibbles.

I don’t like wine – what’s in it for me?

You might meet people who are working on a similar problem to you in a different department who can offer a fresh perspective on your work. You might see ways in which your work can be applied to new fields, leading to collaborations and far wider impact. Or you might treat the event as a social occasion where you can meet people with similar interests. The only thing that’s certain is that you won’t know unless you go.

Sounds good, but I’m not sure I’ll have time…

Very well; but you’ll also miss two inspirational short talks from researchers who have done brilliant collaborative work: Max Little from MIT , and our very own Napoleon Katsos.

OK. I’m sold! But how much will it cost?

I knew you wouldn’t resist Napoleon. Online registration is completely free for researchers at the university or other organisations which are part of the Cambridge Language Sciences Strategic Research Initiative – just sign up here Spaces are limited, so get registered asap.
