Research Lifecyle project: April update

Reading Time: 2 minutes

Last chance to help define the future of research support and infrastructure

The Research Lifecycle Programme (RLP) team have been hosting a number of engagement sessions to understand the varying needs and views of researchers and research support staff, in order to define what areas of research support and infrastructure need future investment. So the team can engage with a wide range of colleagues, the workshops have been extended until mid-May.  

The team want to ensure that any future investment into a second RLP is purposeful, beneficial and guided by the research community. For this reason, they need a wide range of research and research support staff to tell them their needs and ideas to shape the future of research support and infrastructure over the next few years.

Sign up to one of the following workshops, or take part in the survey, to have their say before the business case is written.
