Let's get together & make new connections

between people & ideas (while enjoying good coffee/tea)!

Overview

You are part of a vibrant community of researchers, learners & doers at QUT, creating and applying new knowledge, in a myriad of different areas. It's exciting...even more so when a diverse mix of people get together.  

KofiCon is bringing together, as our special guests, QUT HDR Students & Researchers - from any & all disciplines - to connect & share ideas in a relaxed atmosphere - over a free cup of barrista quality coffee/tea.  Others at QUT who are wanting to connect with HDR (higher degree research) students & researchers are welcome too.


Registration & Attendance

Please register if you'd like to attend, as spaces are limited (& let us know if you can't make it so that others get a chance to come along).

We will send out a confirmation email closer to the event for drinks orders.

Why KofiCon is Exciting

KofiCon is creating a meta-community of researchers and HDRs at QUT who are interested in: 

  • mixing with a diversity of thinkers
  • exchanging and exploring new ideas
  • forming new connections that bridge traditional silos and research disciplines
  • sowing the seeds for new opportunities, including in transdisiplinary research and innovation 
  • enjoying the social aspect of researching at a great place of learning which attracts other bright and inquisitive minds
  • continually learning in new ways 
  • enjoying a fun and friendly atmosphere; &/or
  • thinking about and solving real world problems and challenges, harnessing a diversity of expertise 

As we have seen from the KofiCon events, when a diversity of people across QUT connect in a relaxed setting, new acquaintances are made, friendships are built, and great things can happen - including diverse teams forming organically to collaborate, problem solve and pursue opportunities.

KofiCon Benefits

As researchers and HDRs, we know there's a growing impetus for research that is impactful, engaging, innovative, and transdisciplinary.  At QUT we find this echoed and imprinted in the Strategic Blueprint 5.

In addition to enjoying a warm beverage in good company, you may find KofiCon helps you in each of the above aspects.

We know that providing opportunities to connect in a KofiCon context can increase:

  • collaboration
  • knowledge sharing 
  • learning
  • problem solving
  • creativity
  • innovation
  • novel research
  • transdisciplinary research
  • access to new funding
  • competitive advantage
  • efforts to identify and address real world problems & grand challenges
  • connections to new research partners in industry & other sectors
  • other synergies and benefits
