SC4 Research Workshops


The purpose of the research workshop is to discuss planned or ongoing researches, as well as to get support in developing research ideas that are not fully developed yet. Rather than only focusing on communicating results, we will also focus on discussing with an experienced audience critical points that remain open. This is not limited to papers, it can also include grant proposals, consortium development, R&R, etc.


“For this purpose, which research design would fit best?”

“From this data, which further analysis would be interest to see?”

“Are these hypotheses valid and strong enough?”

− Discuss critical points with an audience working within the topic

− Test the ‘pitch’ in the early stages of a project (problem, hypothesis, research design, etc.)

For the Audience
