MRS runs Roadshows across the UK so that you can meet the Chief Executive and MRS team to find out about the latest MRS initiatives and developments impacting the wider research sector.
year has been exceptionally busy for MRS, not only was it our 70th
anniversary in 2016, but we have been working on policies and support packages for new data
regulations (and indeed a new ICO), the implications of Brexit, nuisance
calling initiatives to be navigated and much more. Not only have our events and
awards had a record-breaking year, but we have been able to launch a new
network in Northern Ireland, complete our mentoring pilot, relaunch Research
Live and move forward discussions on recruiter standards.
come and ask the MRS team about any of this, or indeed anything else you would
like to discuss. In particular, we will cover:
GDPR and data protection: with the new General Data
Protection Regulation scheduled to be in force by May 2018, Dr Michelle Goddard
will share current state of play and implementation, and inform what you
and your organisation has to do to be ready.
The Business of Evidence 2016: this
research sector report prepared by PwC for MRS not only looks at sector
economics but also considers the skills that researchers will need in order to
be fit for the challenges and opportunities ahead.
New services for young researchers: our
current network for young researchers attracts 1,000 professionals. As the
sector changes it is clear new skills and services are required to help young
talent reach their potential and to support companies in retaining and
developing the best. We share our plans for this important group.
can also update you on the new Mentoring Programme which we previewed last year
and the latest Delphi Group research report on the Insight Driven Organisation
being released this November.
