Title: Research Professional News Future of the Research Office survey: What the findings mean for RMAs in Europe

This year, Research Professional News surveyed more than 800 research services leaders, research managers and administrators around the world to inform a special report into research offices’ challenges, opportunities and future direction. At the same time, 800 researchers gave their views on the support they receive and how they believe this may need to change in future.

This webinar will look in depth at findings from Europe-based respondents to the study, which will be made available to coincide with the event. We will look at trends in pressures facing research offices and the ways in which they may need to evolve to respond.

Topics covered include: resourcing, research impact, research assessment, integrity, the use of AI and more.

The aim of the session is to give delegates an up-to-date insight into common challenges and opportunities across Europe’s research offices, and—by looking at respondents’ views of changing needs in research enablement and support—draw out ways in which research offices and those who work in them can best prepare for the future.

After presenting the findings, we will discuss their implications through a panel discussion and audience Q&A.
