World Café

World_Cafe_ThoughtsWhat is a World Café?

A World Café is a way to share knowledge and views through conversation on specific topics. Our events adapted materials made available from The Wellcome Trust World Cafés on Research Culture to engage with people who work in research at UCD through research institutes, colleges, networks, and other groups.

World Café Events in UCD

With a view to building upon the findings of the 2021 UCD Research Culture Survey, a series of thirteen World Café events were conducted between January to May 2022. The purpose of these events was to validate key findings from the Quantitative Survey Report through detailed discussion and to facilitate further input, engagement and ownership of the process from the UCD Research Community. The events included participants from across the Colleges, from the Research Institutes, and from all roles and career stages at UCD.

The next series of World Café events will take place in Spring 2024. Details will be available on this page shortly.
