WMG Doctoral Research and Innovation Conference

Bridging the Gap between Academia and Industry
Industrial and academic research are the two faces of the same coin. This conference is a step towards bridging the gap between two by presenting and showcasing the impeccable interdisciplinary and industry standard research thorough with academic wisdom. The motivation is to bring the industry and academia under the same roof for fluent interaction by providing valuable insights into strategies and dynamics that characterise the success factor of research projects. The opportunity to give words to your enlightened ideas and its impact on industry and society has been provided in the form of WMG Doctoral Conference 2017.
Doctoral students from WMG are invited to submit abstracts for the 4th edition of the conference to showcase and present your research.
What is the Economic and Societal impact of your research and
How your research plays a key role in the Academia-Industry relationship?
We want to stimulate students to think about the implications of their research, the links and connections it has with other disciplines and the methodological rigour that goes into the research process.
First-year WMG doctoral students may present a poster, all final year doctoral students must present a paper and all other WMG research students will be asked to present a paper or a poster depending on the conference arrangements. Attendance is compulsory for all WMG research students.
