What is leadership and what are the characteristics of effective leadership in research and higher education? Top down or bottom up? Leading from the front, or leading from behind? Captain or coach? Leadership literature is replete with modes and models of leadership, but which of these (if any) is appropriate for universities and other research organisations?
- Hear from an international and diverse line up of research leaders
- Discover their personal stories of leadership and participate in a panel discussion
- Debate how to develop the next generation of research and management leaders
- Network and explore opportunities, issues and challenges of leadership in a global context
Our first sessions will explore individual and personal leadership, followed by a debate on developing the next generation of research leaders.
Our keynote will be delivered by Rebecca Endean, Strategy Director for UK Research and Innovation In her prior role of Director of Research and Innovation Reform, Business and Science at the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, with overall responsibility for the Higher Education and Research Bill that created UK Research and Innovation. There will be a Q&A following the presentation.
The keynote will be followed by a series of UK and International speakers telling a ‘story’ from their leadership journey, or their experience of leadership. Through a panel session there will be the opportunity for questions and further discussion exploring where there are differences in leadership culture across the globe and challenges that leaders face.
The afternoon will be a discussion on developing the next generation of research leaders. Exploring topics such as both good and bad leadership; challenges on building and sustaining leadership capacity internationally; issues arising due to disciplinary differences and of course those of equality and diversity. Inviting contributions from Early Career Researchers, from Social and Natural Sciences, researchers and RMAs working, and, those with a responsibility for capacity building.
