Four outstanding researchers from RMIT Vietnam – successful recipients of the RMIT Early Career Researcher (ECR) Enabling Capability Platforms (ECP) Travel Award – visited the Melbourne City campus.
Early career researchers Dr Hiep Pham, Dr Sagi Mathew, Dr Edouard Amouroux and Dr Brian McCauley attended an intensive five-day workshop in February.
They presented their research findings and participated in workshops with about 40 peers and senior research leaders.
The workshops covered career development, grants, research translation and publishing. Attendees also had the opportunity to meet with prospective research collaborators and mentors to lay the groundwork for future partnerships.
McCauley said: "It was fantastic to be immersed in a supportive environment alongside other researchers at a similar point in their career.
This travel grant was a fantastic opportunity for academics starting out in Vietnam."
The workshops were facilitated by Emeritus Professor Alan Johnson AM, with participation from Professor Calum Drummond (Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research and Innovation and Vice-President). Distinguished Professor Xinghuo Yu (Associate Deputy Vice-Chancellor Research Capability, Research and Innovation) also spoke to the group at a networking session.
