ImpactMobilising Research: Create positive change through research.
A Global Summer Program presented by The Australian National University (ANU). Sunday 25 June – Friday 14 July
ANU is opening up its Vice Chancellor course Mobilising Research to select ANU international partners, including King’s College London. Mobilising Research is an intense interdisciplinary course which will challenge students to see research from a new perspective and give students an opportunity to meet world class ANU researchers.
This intensive, interdisciplinary Summer Program will equip you to put research into action and reset the agenda in favour of the public good.
Over three weeks you will live, learn and work with students from a wide range of disciplines and from around the globe. Your exposure to different mindsets, approaches, and cultural norms will challenge you to see the world the way others do.
ANU would like to invite research oriented students from King’s College London to apply for a place in the course. The three-week course will bring together a small cohort of high quality students from around the world to explore how interdisciplinary research can address future global threats. This intensive course is equivalent to an ANU semester long course and students will receive an ANU transcript for their studies.
Students will be accommodated in university residential colleges as well as spending a week at the ANU South Coast Campus, Kioloa.

Social media and digital tools are now a staple of many researcher practices and have brought new dimensions to publishing, finding and organising information, problem solving and results sharing.
But what does it really mean to be ‘a digital academic’? How can you build your online academic profile via social media? Maybe you don’t think you have time or you don’t know what to do first. Do hiring committees actually care about your ‘digital academic impact’?
To help you identify the must-have technologies and tools for being a modern digital academic and the skills to manage them successfully, jobs.ac.uk and piirus.ac.uk are hosting an exclusive half-day workshop event.
This informative, detailed and practical workshop features a superb line-up of speakers including Dr Inger Mewburn from The Thesis Whisperer, who will share her top tips for building your online academic profile and managing a blog.
