Researcher Development Programme (RDP): Research Ethics and the Approval Process

Research Ethics and the Approval Process

Wednesday 26 February 2020, 13:00-14:00

The session will begin by attempting to de-mystify research ethics. It is a commonly held misconception that research ethics requires considerable specialist knowledge (for example, of the kind moral philosophers have); this is not the case. As a consequence, the session will focus on practicalities by outlining the structures, policies, procedures, documentation and timescales about which it is important for those seeking ethical approval for their research to be familiar.

Researcher Development Programme (RDP): Impact Development

Impact Development

Tuesday 25 February 2020, 14:00 – 16:30

The ‘impact’ agenda plays an increasingly important role in the allocation of resources for research in the UK. The extent to which research undertaken by a University’s staff has generated non-academic impact plays a role in the allocation of funds via the REF. Research Councils also take into account the quality of impact plans (Pathways to Impact) when awarding funding to researchers.

At the end of this session, individuals will:

  • Understand what is meant by ‘impact’ and how it is relevant to research
  • Understand how to plan impact into research proposals especially for research council bids
  • Understand how to use some simple impact planning tools
  • Understand how to monitor and track impact during a research project
  • Understand how to evidence impact for REF and other purposes
