SIG: Research Development

Date & Time:

17th June 2019
15:45 - 17:00


Meeting Room 3b

With the Augar review on the horizon and Brexit right on the doorstep, the external landscape is evolving in such a way that means resilience has never been more important for institutions. However with the planned increased investment for R&D spending (to increase to 2.4%) and new funding streams becoming available, we also are faced with new opportunities for success. How do we measure success as research development professionals? Are we reduced only to an annual research income figure? And what happens when things go wrong? Such questions are key when considering prosperity and resilience as research development professionals. 

This SIG session will focus on facilitated group discussions where we will reflect on what is means to be prosperous and resilient as research development professionals. Key discussions will focus on our understanding and the practical implications of such concepts, how these are distinctive for research development, how the external landscape influences these (using a PESTLE exercise), before discussing how the SIG can work collegiately to look to address these issues.
