Following the very successful model launched at the International Research Symposium in Victoria, the International Research Community (IRC) will be offering a Research Workshop at the IRS in Stuttgart in June 23-27, 2018.

The Research Workshop will run in two parts, each a half day long.

PART I will be held on Sunday June 24, 2018 from 2:15 – 5:00 pm at the DHBW Headquarters Building Friedrichstraffe 14 in Stuttgart.

The focus of Part I will be to engage in an Open Space Technology process to identify research topics of interest and groupings around those topics.

PART II will be Wednesday, June 27, 2018 from 1:45 – 4:45 pm at the BW-I Haus der Wirtschaft - Willi-Bleicher-Strasse 19 Stuttgart.

The focus of Part II will be to provide the research groupings established in Part I the opportunity to gather and plan research collaborations around their topic of choice.
