Trusted research and knowledge exchange – final event speakers confirmed

Book on this event

Join us to discover more about ensuring the integrity of research and protecting and capitalising on IP in collaborative projects between enterprise and research organisations.

With the launch of our research and innovation sector strategy 2021-2023 and its focus on applied research and knowledge exchange, and supporting its commercialisation and deployment, join our expert panel at our online event: Trusted research on Wednesday 3rd February 11:30-12:30.

The demands on and priorities of the UK research and innovation sector are evolving at pace. The interconnected systems producing world-class research and dynamic innovation are increasingly reliant on shared and secure infrastructure to enable their growth.

We see the need to prioritise on integrity and transparency, while accelerating routes to application.  

We also see a need for increased use of virtual research environments which brings challenges for managing data and intellectual property (IP), with added risks for multi-partner research projects.
Our research and innovation sector strategy sets out how we will continue to support the sector over the next two years. Our focus includes empowering researchers and research consortia in developing fundamental, applied and practice-based research and translating it into knowledge exchange, and economic and social impact.

As the UK commits further to removing barriers to innovation, including reducing bureaucracy, introducing flexible funding schemes and increasing skills in research translation and entrepreneurship, the breadth of academic-industry collaborations and commercial spinouts from academic research is set to grow.

The process of collaboration and commercialisation moving “off-campus” is creating a vibrant ecosystem of institutions that require the same access to research facilities and advanced infrastructure.

Join us to discover more about ensuring the integrity of research and protecting and capitalising on IP in collaborative projects between enterprise and research organisations.

Our confirmed speakers are:

  • Alex Chaix, head of commercialisation, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)
  • Dr Andy Walsh RTTP, board member of PraxisAuril and director, academic liaison at GSK
  • Jennifer Stergiou, director of research and innovation service at Northumbria University, and chair of ARMA
  •  James Dracott, head of information and communication technologies, engineering and physical sciences research council, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI)

The panel will consider:

  • What are the key considerations in virtual trusted research environments for good governance
  • How do we reduce barriers while maintaining integrity and trust, accelerating translational research?
  • What are some of the digital, technical governance considerations that can give data owners and funders reassurance in managing, using and accessing sensitive data?

Our expert panel will discuss these challenges focusing particularly on trusted research data. Hear their thoughts and examples of effective research practices and understand strategies you can easily adopt now to make data secure, and how to efficiently manage collaboration between parties that facilitates knowledge exchange.
