TRISS Visiting Scholars
The TRiSS Visiting Scholar programme allows leading international researchers to spend periods of time at TRiSS ranging from one week to one year. This programme expands the research capability of TRiSS and encourages the development of collaborative projects between local and external researchers. The visitor programme is intended to help build the research capacity of TRiSS and its associated Schools by promoting interaction between visitors and TRiSS researchers. This is done by the presentation of work in seminars, collaborating with TRiSS researchers, being available to talk to TRiSS postgraduate students, participating in conferences & seminars as well as other informal activities.
