Edinburgh Napier University worked in partnership with Worktribe to develop and implement an end-to-end research management system supporting the full research cycle. We are the first University to implement the full system provided by Worktribe. This session will discuss the motivation for taking this approach, present the benefits we have realised and the challenges on route. Prof Kennedy will present a leadership perspective on the rationale and risks in choosing Worktribe and the cross University collaboration required to realise the system. Jon Hackney will discuss the benefits and challenges of working closely with academic partners to develop research information systems. We will provide a demo of Worktribe showing the range of functionality followed by a presentation from Lindsay on the challenges in adoption of the system by administrative staff and academics and the benefits and challenges engageing with the system. The session will finish with a Q&A. Delegates require little prior knowledge to benefit from the session except a general understanding of the requirement to manage research information. This session will present experiences from both University and Worktribe perspectives and how a system with end-to end to research management can be a benefit to both academics and research offices.
