Report FASoS Research Day 2018

On 8 November 2018 the annual Research Day took place at the Groote Societeit Maastricht. All research programmes and all types of positions (senior and junior) were well represented. In the first part of the day staff talked in break-out groups about the challenges concering data management and data storage, based on exemplary research data management paragraphs from recent funding applications, for their types of research.

The second part consisted of a lecture by Sally Wyatt, ‘The BA Digital Society: Implications for research at FASoS’. After this lecture staff convened again in break-out groups to discuss the following topics:

  • Using the 3rd BA as a test bed for research-teaching integration;
  • Linking to the wider UM and national discussion;
  • Digital methods; and
  • The third BA as an opportunity for interdisciplinarity / cross-research programme collaboration.

During the final part of the meeting the FASoS Valorisatie prize was awarded to Floris Peters, Hans Schmeets and Maarten Vink and we listened to a driven presentation by Michel Dumontier, ‘Digital research beyond FASoS – linking across faculty boundaries’. As a follow-up to his talk the Research Institute will set up speed dates with his Institute for interested researchers.

The full report can be downloaded. The presentations by Sally Wyatt and Michel Dumontier and some pictures can be found on the Staff Intranet (My UM > My FASoS > Research Institute > FASoS Research Day).
