Research & Innovation Supporters' Conference – 14 June 2016.
The University of Sheffield Octagon Centre.

On 14 June 2016 we ran a one-day conference in the Octagon Centre that was designed specifically for professionals who support research and/or innovation activities – for professionals based in academic departments, in faculties, in Professional Services and in research centres and institutes.

At the time this was a new initiative, the purpose of which was threefold:
  • To Increase awareness and understanding of our ambition and strategic direction on research and innovation within a challenging climate, and the critical contribution that individual professionals make and need to make to this
  • To share and increase knowledge throughout the R&I professional community – of respective roles, perspectives, systems, processes, topics
  • To increase a tangible sense of belonging to a wider community

The three themes
There were three underlying themes of the conference:
  • Big Picture & Strategy – How professionals can help with the transformation of strategic R&I ambitions
  • Managerial & Operational – Technical and operational dimensions, for example new R&I support systems and processes, impact, public engagement, PGR, scholarly communication
  • Professional Development & Wellbeing – For example, how to be productive not busy, collaboration and culture change

The full programme of events can be found here.
