Registration for this event has passed

 The 7th annual Researcher Education and Development Scholarship (REDS) online conference is now open for bookings.

The 2021 REDS conference asks:

How can personal and professional development for researchers impact upon change in research culture?

How do we develop and support agents and drivers of change across all the stages of a research career?

What role is played in change, by those working in the professional
development of researchers? How do we provide strategic support for the development of 'behaviours, values, expectations, attitudes and norms' for researchers?

What lessons can be learnt from online working? Which approaches help to create more inclusive environments?


Keynote presentation - Innovation without limits: Imagining a possible
inclusive future for researchers Dr Jessica Gagnon, University of Strathclyde.
