CINNergies is a creative and diverse community of early career researchers who share an openness for and motivation to engage in interdisciplinary research.

Our mission: To provide opportunities for early career researchers to meet, to connect, and to share their research interests with the overarching aim of:

  • Fostering a continued knowledge exchange between disciplines

  • Initiating interdisciplinary openness in academic careers

  • Promoting the generation of novel and innovative research projects that bring together multiple disciplines (or approaches) or from which new disciplines (or approaches) emerge

Next Events 

We are happy to announce that our next talk will be given by Dr. Sam Poskitt on November 7th.

Dr. Sam will explore participatory scenario planning (PSP) – a process in which people with different social and disciplinary perspectives collectively imagine alternative, plausible narratives of the future for tackling combined social and environmental challenges.

Stay tuned for the location to be announced.

Afterwards, we are all going for drinks at Park House! Cheers!

Visualising Connections: What does interdisciplinarity look like?

CINNergies was part of the inspiring #lunchtimeencounters!

Miranda Laurence, the new Visual Arts Development Officer of the University organized a series of lunchtime encounters/expositions at the sculpture created by students of architecture.

CINNergies had a drop-in activity exploring and playing with the idea of collaboration. What does interdisciplinarity look like? How would you visualize it? Imagine it? Make it? How would you represent the outcomes of a collaboration and how would it make you feel?

It was a delightful time! ;-) 


As a celebration for CINNergies first semester and for the end of the summer term, we have organized a super fun CINNergies Pub Quiz 

It was such a nice event where we could connect, share experiences and make more friends!

And to spice things a little bit, there was even a prize! 😊




On Wednesday, the 18th of April, we gathered for drinks at the pub once again!! It was awesome! The weather was sunny and we all sat on the grass next to Park House! We even took some pictures! You can find them on the link Past Events and Pictures.

We talked about our mission, how it started, who we are, and what are our plans and calendar. We were glad to engage with ECRs and PhDs and invite them to be part of this enterprise, and we were very happy with their support! Thanks to the School for the warm welcome!
