Save the Date! Next ASHPIT Think Tank…
The next think tank event will be held on Monday 28th May at the University of Oxford and will respond particularly to the new landscape of Doctoral Training Centres and cross-HEI consortia, and to policy arising from the impact agenda. Its key themes will be:
« Collaborating in consortia – including in the development of funding bids.
« Embedding impact in researcher development – with a special focus on linking RCUK and REF ‘impacts’ and on how best to support PGRs and ECRs in their development of ‘impactful’ research projects.
« Preparing PGRs for careers in academia – including in terms of the development of a skills ‘tool-kit’ for PGRs and ECRs, this perhaps to be developed through HE-based ‘internships’.
Speakers will include representatives of the Research Councils, as well as academics and researcher developers, and we hope that the event will provide both useful information about and a forum for discussion of some of the most important facets of those topics.
Those interested in attending the next event should send email details of their name, role and institution to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 11th May, indicating whether or not they require support for travel costs.
