Testimonials 2014/15 Programme:
'The workshop was relevant and informative to the job role and coverage of the REF2014 was timely and insightful. I would highly recommend the workshop to wannabe Director of Research or academics that are passionate about the development of research engagement in their institutions. The workshops further provided the opportunity to network with colleagues from other institutions and to share experience and knowhow. The benefits are far-reaching and worth the investment to attend'. Jonathan Liu, Regent’s University London.
'The course gave me the chance to meet people from a range of institutions, and it was reassuring to see that we share similar problems! The range of speakers and the hard work of the organisers to shape the programme to suit our demands made sure that I didn’t want to miss any of the 8 days.' Gary Bosworth, University of Lincoln.
