Research strategy consultation: join our town halls and share your thoughts

April 26th, 2021

Update from Professor Dame Jessica Corner 

I am delighted to announce a series of town halls to update you on the development of our five-year research strategy.

We encourage our whole community – colleagues from all job families as well as researchers and staff who support research – to join us and help shape our vision for the future of research.

The virtual town halls follow the first steps of our university-wide consultation, where we asked colleagues to  respond to a simple set of questions on the future of research at Nottingham.

We received 1,426 responses, which is excellent. Your insights are essential as we work together to deliver a new strategy for research.

The town halls will update you on the consultation so far, how to get further involved and plans including a series of workshops that will help shape how we prioritise and achieve our ambitions for research. There will also be an opportunity to ask a question.

There are five events, each geared towards one of our faculties. If you are unable to attend your faculty’s event, please feel free to express an interest in attending one that best suits you.

The town halls take place on:

Monday, 17 May 11am-noon – Faculty of Social Sciences

Tuesday, 18 May 10.30-11.30am – Medicine and Health Sciences

Tuesday, 25 May 11am-noon – Arts

Wednesday, 26 May 4-5pm – Science

Thursday, 27 May 3.30-4.30pm – Engineering

Please register your interest (before 5pm, Friday 14 May 2021). A Teams link will be sent to you during week commencing 10 May.

I will be joined by the relevant faculty Associate Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange at each of the town halls. Each faculty will also be contacting colleagues about the town halls.

We look forward to welcoming you. Thank you for taking the time to help shape our future.
