All University of Pittsburgh faculty, tenure stream and non-tenure stream, are invited to a special series of networking opportunities made possible by the Year of Pitt Global. This Global Salon series brings together faculty and researchers from across the University to build relationships and share proposed or ongoing research. The Salons are organized around the UN's Sustainable Development Goals in five themes: People, Prosperity, Planet, Peace, and Partnership.
Goals for the Global Salon:
1. Increase local networks, build new relationships, form working groups
2. Encourage open dialogue across disciplines and develop common research agendas
3. Highlight efforts Pitt faculty undertake to address global issues
Additionally, Global Salon participants may be eligible for seed grant funding to advance multi-disciplinary research projects.
The Global Salons are free of charge, and lunch is provided, but registration is required. Register here: https://pitt.co1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_6hZGlhwSyLx5DM1
Each Global Salon allows faculty to enjoy lunch while discussing their research informally through conversation groups. All faculty, regardless of full-time, part-time, or tenure status, are welcome to register.
