INSPIRE Student Mentoring network
In addition to developing a mentoring network at the summer school (particularly for those unable to attend) we will develop a mentoring network between academics, early career researchers and UoL vet students through a mentoring network event organised earlier in the year. This is because often vet students book their EMS early and do not realise they can use up to 6 weeks of EMs for a research project. By having an initial event we will increase the number of students available to partake in research. The event will consist of a number of short 2-3 minute ‘speed research talks’ by potential mentors to describe their area of interest. Afterwards there will a chance for student to network with the mentors.
