First BIRMM Research Day

  • April 26, 2019

VUB Migration & Diversity Researchers Unite to Cooperate More!

 

On Friday 26 April 2019, the Brussels Interdisciplinary Research Centre for Migration and Minorities (BIRMM) organized its first full research day!

Around 30 VUB researchers from many different disciplines presented and discussed their research. Strongly believing in the importance of interdisciplinary cross-fertilization, this research day allowed to get to know each other’s research. This will lead to further academic collaborations across the disciplinary divides, aiming at conducting innovative research and tackling societal challenges.

A first concrete interdisciplinary collaboration was discussed during a ‘Food for Thought’ session over lunch. More than 50 VUB researchers launched the process of writing an open-access book presenting VUB migration and diversity research to a wider audience. More to come!
