Arts, Humanities & Innovation - Connecting with Industry

As part of the Arts, Humanities and Innovation – Connecting with Industry speaker series, Dr Úna Newell, Content Architect at Orreco, will talk about her experience moving from an academic career as a humanities researcher, to working with a sports science company that focuses on improving the performance of pro-athletes. Úna will discuss the types of skills we have as scholars of the humanities and how she applies them in her role at Orreco.

This series of talks is aimed at researchers from the Arts & Humanities, and will be of particular interest to PhD students considering options for future career development.
