6 October, 2014 - Research Councils UK Roadshow

Time: -

From September all seven Research Councils will be using Researchfish for the collection of information on the outcomes of Research Council funded research. Dates for roadshows on the new harmonised collection service are now available. Previously researchers funded by AHRC, BBSRC, EPSRC, ESRC and NERC returned information via a system called ROS (Research Outcomes System) whilst only researchers funded by STFC and MRC returned information via Researchfish. A roadshow on the new harmonised collection service has now been arranged near UCL, on Monday 6 October at the Hilton London Euston. The roadshow is free of charge and open to all researchers, research managers and research administrators. It is anticipated that there will be separate morning and afternoon sessions (depending on numbers) and will be an opportunity to find out about RCUK plans for research outcomes and ask any questions you may have.

Location: Hilton London Euston, 17-18 Upper Woburn Place, ,
