Event Details

The workshop will help participants think through some of the challenges inherent in managing and leading a team or service to deliver high quality research management. Participants will be encouraged to consider what high quality research management is in the context of their organisation. They will then think through how they might lead the team or service through changes required to deliver that ideal, including considering what the possible options might be, understanding the change process, and bidding for and managing the required resources.

The workshop will be led by current Directors of Research Office and there will be ample opportunity to share and discuss experiences with them and the rest of the group. Participants should already have, or be just about to take on some responsibility for managing and delivering high quality research management at a team or a service level within their organisation.
