The RED team tailors La Trobe’s Researcher Intensives to the priorities and preferences of our University’s researcher cohort.
The researcher intensives take place twice a year, usually as a 2-day event in June/July and a 1-day even in November/December.
The intensives are ideal for those who are aiming for their next academic levels of research capacity and achievement.
Each set of intensives focus on a different aspect of researcher capacity-building, strategy, and career planning. The priority for the program is to provide education, development, and career-building opportunities that are sustainable, productive, and reflective of La Trobe University’s values. Gaining development in these areas will enable researchers to add significantly to the research culture of their surrounding institutional contexts.
The intensives are convened and managed by the RED team, and involve La Trobe’s senior research executive, specialist university units, invited guest speakers, and the researchers themselves.
Through participating, La Trobe researchers will benefit from intellectual, professional, and applied outcomes that extend well beyond the program itself.
How do I participate?
The Researcher Intensives require registration, and numbers for the intensives are capped. We recommend you our Researcher Development mailing list to receive information about the intensives and other research staff programming.
The intensives are open to all La Trobe University academic staff.
The next research intensive will be held on 20-21 June 2023. The theme for the June intensive is “Will your research make a difference?” and topic streams include discussion of research impact, engagement strategies and support, and influencing industry and community.
