Research Impact: Exploring the Roadmap (delivered by Open Forum Events)

24 November @ 9:25 am - 4:35 pm


Open Forum Events and Kudos invites you to join us at our 6th National Research Impact: Exploring the Roadmap conference. We will explore how to realise the full potential of the governments commitment to turning the UK into a ‘science superpower’ and has outlined its strategy to do so in the new UK Research & Development Roadmap.

This CPD accredited conference programme will bring together National leaders from across higher education and research establishment from across the UK to explore a long-term plan to make Britain a global centre for world-class research and dynamic innovation, supported by new initiatives such as the R&D Place Strategy, Global Talent Visa and Office for Talent; as well as existing frameworks like the REF.

Our programme of expert speakers will feature an overview of the challenges and opportunities ahead with guidance from organisations such as The Royal Society, Kudos, Bath Spa University and University of Nottingham to name a few.

The conference offers an opportunity to explore the significance of pursuing ambitious projects that galvanise academia, the public, government and industry in the interest of addressing important societal issues. The Prime Minister’s Council for Science and Technology has provided central principals guiding the development of Moonshots – the conference will be an opportunity to explore these principals and develop cross-sector networks around ground-breaking R&D that excites and inspires.

Get up to date information on the UK’s access to European Union research funding and/or new domestic equivalents to EU framework programmes for funding and innovation beyond the Brexit transition period. Discuss how R&D intensity and funding can expand beyond the ‘Golden Triangle’ of London, the South-East and East England to equate regions of the UK with domestic leaders and European institutes; as well as exploring how the UK R&D Place Strategy can make the fullest contribution to unlocking local growth and societal benefit from R&D across the UK’s regions.
