The Research and Innovation Staff Development Programme provides our research and innovation staff with professional skills and career development workshops and networks, as well as access to resources to support their work in delivering the research and innovation strategy.

We have recently updated our Research and Innovation Staff Development Programme webpage to make it easier to navigate and find information.  As well as details of any upcoming live workshops, you will also find details of our career stage networks and have access to a wealth of resources with tools and tips to support a range of research and innovation activities from finding funding, writing grant bids and ethics training resources to working with business.  Access them via this link.

If you are a new member of research staff, check out our Research Staff Welcome and Induction which provides all you need to know about us, our services, career development and where to find more information to support you.  (More support and information will be added to this site over the coming months). 

New online resources

Learning from the experience of the last 18 months, we are harnessing the technology to offer more online resources to support our research and innovation community.  We have recently added the following online courses:

Writing for the public: why and how – using the Conversation to reach a global audience

Ethics training resources

More online courses will be added to our webpage later.

We have also secured additional places for our Research Grant Writing Online Workshop – feedback received from those who accessed this last year was very positive and we will add this to our RISDP workshops page when it is available for booking.
