Collaborating with Strangers workshops connect UW students, faculty, and researchers during 3-minute speed meetings. Participants exchange and generate ideas, building new partnerships to start or improve upon research projects. It might otherwise take you years to meet the people you'll connect with during one-on-one conversations.

Feedback from Past Attendees

The most useful part of the workshop was...

"Being able to meet people with similar interests from departments I would otherwise never interact with."
"Interacting with live people in real time. Why? It sharpens inter-personal and social skills."
"The 3-minute speed introductions, which maximized the use of building a personal connection on professional interests."
