Global Trends in Institutional Research Seminar

Good institutional research practices can help a university showcase strengths and better understand the full picture of activity on campus. When you fully understand all the researcher-related activity on campus, you can make more informed decisions that can help guide your research strategy.

This seminar will provide insights on overcoming the most pressing challenges that research managers and institutional research professionals face. Learn how to improve your institute’s ability to establish, execute and evaluate research strategy and performance via:

  • Best practices around collecting, storing and reporting on research-related data
  • Global strategies on data management and how to showcase your research information management system on campus.
  • Solutions to illustrate the full spectrum of academic activities on the researcher, research center or departmental level

Additionally, this event will give you a chance to build your professional network, with both local and global universities.
