Working in small and/or specialist institutions is an exceptional thing: the research office remit ranges from researcher development conversations to the REF submission to Public Engagement events, and everything in-between. These are special institutions with broad histories and varying degrees of research intensity, so scale and infrastructure is often lacking, but there are national standards and frameworks to be met nonetheless. Research office staff work alone or in small teams, playing a variety of roles and stretching their knowledge in all directions to cover the bases required. This workshop will offer small and/or specialist institution staff the chance to learn and exchange knowledge through a themed speed-networking event. Questions will be provided by the hosts on a timed schedule: when the bell rings, it’s time for another question and another delegate. Questions will be themed around key aspects of all-encompassing research roles including: Research Development; REF & research assessment; Knowledge Exchange; Policies and procedures. Delegates will be asked to capture their favourite ideas on Twitter or on provided postcards, which will be circulated later.
Aimed at staff from small and/or specialist institutions, this novelty KE session will stimulate multiple interactions, to generate kinship, future relations, and new ideas.
