Robbie Fordyce

The Networked Society Institute (NSI) is a focal point for interdisciplinary research on the impact of connectivity on society, at the University of Melbourne.

On Thursday 26 April the Institute will host a day-long workshop on the process of designing a collaborative research project, led by current members of the Doctoral Academy.

This event is designed for early stage PhD students from any discipline who have an interest in any issue related to the networked society.

This event provides you an opportunity to work outside your normal skill set, in a supportive environment, and learn new methodological approaches at this early stage in your own research.

If you are an early stage PhD candidate and are interested in joining the Doctoral Academy in 2018, this event will give you a great opportunity to learn more about the NSI and the work it does and support you in the application process.

The day will be catered and there will be prizes available for your innovative research ideas.


Participating in the Research Design Jam will allow you to:

  • Connect with others that have a different knowledge and disciplinary approach
  • Meet other post-grads across the university early in your career
  • Build interdisciplinary linkages
  • Understand the research process
  • Receive training to develop your research skills
  • Find out more about the Networked Society Institute and its Doctoral Academy
