PubhD Coimbra is "a very interesting concept of sharing between colleagues"
"The Path towards the Institutionalisation of Knowledge Transfer in the Portuguese University" is the theme of Luís Silva's PhD. He was a speaker at the February session of PubhD Coimbra and is a PhD student in Governance, Knowledge and Innovation and integrates the Centre for Social Studies at the UC.
Why did you decide to participate in PubhD Coimbra?
I already followed the initiative and found it interesting. After an invitation, I decided to sign up to share some of my research, which I think is a very interesting concept of sharing between colleagues who sometimes are not even from our area and ask questions that make us think about what we are doing.
How was your experience in this edition of PubhD Coimbra?
The experience was good, it makes us reflect and take stock of the research work we are doing. I think it was very positive and I advise all my doctoral colleagues to come here and take a little time to share their research with others and have this moment.
Would you advise other colleagues to participate?
The biggest challenge is always to summarise all the work we do in ten minutes. It is something that we prepare ourselves over time, because the speed of information is brutal. Trying to summarise and translate the concepts and the research project I am doing was a very interesting challenge in itself.
