The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) team are holding an event relating to one of its many projects - to design and implement a Research IT innovation community. Lunch is provided, and this event is open to anyone at the University with an interest in research.

Our lead speaker will be Dr Emma Finch, who is the Innovation Lead of the Research IT Innovation Community project and is currently working throughout the University to develop this community. Her focus so far has been identifying networking and collaboration opportunities currently being overlooked.

Eventually she will be developing a framework through which more research partnerships can be formed.

In addition, Scott Taylor will be giving us an insight into metrics packages (such as SciVal and Altmetrics) which helps researchers find local and international collaboration opportunities with people with similar interests, and Dr David Hodgetts will be talking about Virtual Reality Geological Studio (VRGS), an application which the University has helped Dave package as a product and is now licensed to oil companies and other academic users worldwide. 

This will take place on Thursday 9 May at 12.30pm in the Simon Building:
