RCS Event: Research Management - Smoothing the Way

27 January 2011, Royal Institute of British Architects
66 Portland Place London W1B 1AD

How can research management be integrated across institutions? How can research management systems exploit new methods of communicating research? How best can systems and workflows respond to the requirements of researchers, institutions and research funders? This free one-day conference, organised by the CRC, ARMA, RLUK and SCONUL, is aimed at senior library and information service managers and at research managers. It will offer examples of strategic changes in institutions in response to funding policies and long-term integration between information services and research support services.
