Research Development Day
Presenters: Peter Balan & Dean Parmelee
The program builds on the very successful Research Development Day in 2018. You will learn from several experienced and high-level TBL researchers, as well as from structured and practical exercises with potential collaborators. These will help you to develop your particular research idea, and/or to team up with others to identify a new business idea and plan a research project.
We recommend that you also register for the Research Development Day Follow-Up on the Saturday of the conference. These two sessions are a “must” for those wishing to develop or improve their understanding of research knowledge and who wish to increase their research output. Detailed information about the Research Development Day at the 2018 Conference is on the TBLC member website (Communities of Practice: Research and Scholarship)
You may wish to order a boxed lunch for this full-day program.
*Please note that Research Development Day will have an additional fee of $170 each.
