Take some time out with the Research Hive fortnightly Quaran-Time Tea & Talk

Lockdown has been a real challenge for many researchers, and socialising and self-care may be proving difficult. Join the Hive Scholars for an online Tea & Talk, bringing the doctoral community together to chat and connect over a cuppa / coffee / lemonade (delete as appropriate).

Sign up using this Doodle and the Scholars will be in touch with more details. These sessions will continue fortnightly until campus reopens, so there’s plenty of opportunity to connect with your fellow researchers. The next two dates are Wednesday 8th and Wednesday 22nd July.

The Tea & Talks and accompanying PGR self-care packages are part and parcel of the Hive’s Researcher-Led Initiative, supported by the Researcher Development Programme. The first batch of packages were scooped up in record time, but join the waiting list to be first in line when the scheme reopens in the Autumn term.

For more information see the Hive’s Quaran-Time Tea & Talk blogpost, and keep an eye on their @SussexResHive Twitter feed for regular updates.

This great initiative is another example of how the Hive Scholars continue to support researchers and foster an (online) doctoral community. They know the risk that social isolation brings for researchers, and have worked hard to focus on wellbeing and support. Visit the Hive Scholars website for more PGR-related fun, or join their Slack channels to chat with or work alongside your fellow PhDers.
