OPTIONAL MASTERCLASSES:

Module 6: Responsible Research and Innovation Master class 

Responsible research and innovation (RRI) aims to help individuals and organisations to ensure the acceptability and desirability of research and innovation. It is an agenda that has been adopted by major research funders including the European Commission and the UK Engineering and Physical Science Research Council (EPSRC).

In this blended learning masterclass Orbit, a University of Oxford spinout, will be working with participants to apply their framework, mapping the EPSRC’s AREA principles (Anticipate, Reflect, Engage and Act) against the 4P components of RRI (Process, Purpose, Product and People) to their research proposals.

Module 7Leading Collaboration: bringing people together to achieve the extraordinary. 1 day Masterclass with Kate Tapper, Bud Development. November 2021

You have brilliant ideas for research collaboration that could have extraordinary outcomes. But how will you engage the people you are relying on? Collaborations can be rewarding or draining, depending on how well people connect. In this course we look at what neuroscience has taught us about how to collaborate. You will make sense of why some of your collaborations have felt great to be part of, while others have been a drag.  You will diagnose problems with collaborations you are part of and find practical solutions for improving them. Leave with a clear model for improving all collaborations you lead.

Module 8: Public Policy Unpacked: Three 90-minute lunchtime Masterclasses with Will Pryor, Oxford Policy Engagement Network.

Researchers in MPLS engage with the policymaking community in a wide range of capacities and contexts. Many have found ways to involve policymakers in their research, giving them a stake in outputs that encourages uptake and leads to impact. Some have developed such a strong reputation, network and trust that they are invited by government or parliament to share their knowledge and expertise, or take up formal roles in the policymaking community.

Three sessions that will enable participants to understand better the challenges and rewards of such engagement, the different ways in which colleagues have engaged, and discuss in light of that how to plan, manage and learn from their own engagement.

These sessions are delivered in association with the Oxford Policy Engagement Network – a diverse range researchers and professional services staff from across the University, who share a share a vision of public policy powered by the world’s best available research evidence and expertise. Membership benefits include regular notification of opportunities related to members’ areas of policy interest. ILP participants are encouraged to join, and can do so in less than 5 minutes at www.ox.ac.uk/open.

Module 9: 

How To Apply for Innovate UK Funding: Master Class with Dr Nessa Carey, Royal Society Entrepreneur-in-Residence. November 2021

Innovate UK is an important source of funding for UK researchers from the academic community who want to work with businesses or not-for-profit non-governmental organisations.  Although Innovate UK operates under the UKRI umbrella, and funding is awarded via competitive grant applications, it’s a mistake to approach these in the same way as traditional basic research grants. In this training, you will learn how to structure and write convincing applications. The principles will be applicable not only to Innovate UK calls, but also to any other translational or commercial grant schemes.

Dates and booking details to follow.
