Hit the Ground Running: Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences PhD Induction Event Finished 09:30 - 12:30 Student Services Centre, Exams Hall, Room AG03c


The Schools of the Arts & Humanities and the Humanities & Social Sciences have organised this event to help you settle into the Cambridge research environment, identify essential providers of advice and guidance, and make a positive start to your new research project. To hit the ground running, you need a sense of where you’re headed, so the theme of this induction is being strategic right from day one.

You will have chance to hear about information management from the Library, career support from the Careers Service, and personal development opportunities provided by the Researcher Development Programme.

This event is designed to complement other departmental and College inductions which you may have had.

It will be interactive, using case studies to better understand key ethical issues and challenges in all areas.

The course will:

  • explore the issue of research misconduct in academia and facilitate discussion of why and how it occurs
  • explain the University and national expectations around research integrity and examine how this effects researchers
  • discuss some of the challenges to the integrity of research and ask what individuals, groups and institutions can do to tackle them
  • introduce the University’s research ethics system


The course will be delivered by the Research Governance Team in the Research Strategy Office.

Putting your Research into Context new Finished 09:00 - 12:00 Department of Physics, Maxwell Centre, Rayleigh Seminar (Floor 2)

Do people tune out when you talk to them about your research? Can you explain why your research is worth their attention? Do you know how to make your research better and enable its impact by gathering external perspectives from its downstream beneficiaries, including industry?

This half-day workshop gives you the tools to articulate the broader context of your work. It will help you explain the relevance and anticipated impact of your research to people who need to know about it, but are not part of your immediate community. Practice discussing your work among peers so that you can crystallise your message, and make it relevant. This will maximise the value of your next opportunity to talk about your research to external experts and future users of your research outcomes.

It is particularly relevant if you are preparing for a workshop, conference or poster session where you can engage with potential industrial partners, or look for further sponsorship for your research, preparing for its commercial uptake, or even if you are considering a job outside academia!

This workshop adds to what you may already know about general science communication and presenting. It goes beyond Research Commercialisation 101, and dives deep into how to derive value from conversations with specialist and non-specialist audiences.
