PubhD Cork is a monthly, free event that brings together PhD students from universities & colleges from all over Ireland across a range of disciplines to share their work in ten-minute presentations, with an additional 20 minutes for friendly questions and answers. Masters, undergraduates and general public usually join too because it’s good fun. We currently have PubhD in four locations in Ireland. There is currently PubhD events in Dublin, Galway, Cork & Waterford. PubhD was established by two non-academics working in Nottingham during 2014, since then its network has expanded to over 20 cities, across five different countries. It is a fantastic opportunity to share your research with a non-specialist audience, to test new ideas ahead of a conference, and to meet students from the other universities. So what do you need to present your research?

The PubhD Cork Story
PubhD Cork was launched on the 1st of March 2018, in Old Oak, Cork City centre, by Billy McCarthy. Attendance at the first event being a modest group of 9 people, PubhD Cork is growing month-by-month and becoming a popular monthly event for PhD students, professionals and research enthusiasts alike. It built on the platform set up by PubhD Dublin and It would also play a role in growing the PubhD Ireland brand. The PubhD Cork team is made up of researchers from CIT, TUD, and UCC, studying everything from literature to lactose.
PubhD Cork is still in its infancy but has played a part in global research events like Cork Discovers and Pint of Science as well as showcasing research from institutions such as Teagasc. We have a diverse range of research topics from English Literature to Astrophysics, Religion and the latest in Bacteriophages by a host of speakers from various universities and institutions. Each month bringing new and wonderful ideas, providing great thought provoking for the audience to discuss. We would like to thank the speakers and audience who have supported us throughout the last year, and we hope to see the PubhD community continue to thrive.
