Getting better at research

03 June 2009


Researchers came out of their labs to take part in an innovative Teesside University conference.

Enhancing the Research Culture was offered as a free research staff development programme for anyone with an interest in research to share good practice, discuss current issues and participate in a range of innovative developmental workshop sessions.

The successful conference, at the Thistle Hotel in Middlesbrough, gave researchers a chance to discuss the array of equally demanding responsibilities they have to deal with.

Workshop themes

  • Leadership - David Johnson, Venture to Think
  • Publishing - Fiona Denney, King's College, London
  • Building a research profile - Andrew Rawnsley, Teesside University
  • Enterprise and engagement - Neil Hannah, Teesside University
  • Higher skills agenda - Martin Gough, University of Kent

One of the organisers, Andrew Rawnsley from Teesside, said: 'This was a very successful event and a time for researchers to discover how others deal with the issues which arise in the field.'
