PAIR Talent Accelerator Program: Next generation reasearch leaders

 

The Australia-Indonesia Centre is launching its online Talent Accelerator Program (TAP), aimed at increasing the impact and leadership of early career researchers across Indonesia and Australia.

 

TAP focuses on skills that are not traditionally part of PhD programs, such as working across cultures, multidisciplinary teamwork and social inclusion in research.

The program aims to establish a learning community of next generation research leaders.

Units in the Talent Accelerator Program

TAP units consists of short but substantial blocks of learning. 12h per unit across 4 weeks. Take one, or take them all.

To learn from a diverse range of perspectives, we aim to have a mix of nationalities, gender balance and different disciplines represented in each unit.

Currently, the program consists of four units, the first of which commences in October 2022, with others following late 2022 and early 2023.
