WST main event programme

Main event March 15 2017

The event creates an opportunity for colleagues from across UCD to get involved and share their experiences of working on collaborative projects and initiatives across teams/units – there are lots of different ways to do this including parallel sessions, poster presentations and networking opportunities.

The spine of the day is formed around our three keynote speakers – check here for the overall shape of what they will contribute:
