What's CHEI Talks

CHEI has launched a new series of talks on which guests will meet each other for the first time and engage in a conversation about their research, the importance of internationalisation, and interdisciplinary collaboration in their academic field. 

They will also get to talk about their personal drive, their passion for science, and impact of their work on academia and a wider community. CHEI Talks hopes to open doors and create a window of opportunity for mutual collaboration.

The Talks will be available as webinars on the Microsoft Teams platform and will be open to the public. 



The webinars are hosted by CHEI’s alumnae and fellows Dr Dolly Predovic and Dr Visnja Schampers-Car. Their experience and insight into internationalisation will lead and moderate the Talks with the guests.
