With the aid of the usual refreshments we will be covering:

  • Inclusion and Diversity report: We recently commissioned a study to determine the current state of diversity in the sector. The survey found that discrimination persists around gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age, health and beliefs.
  • GDPR and data protection: With GDPR scheduled to be in force by 25 May 2018, this is the last opportunity to hear from our experts on the implications for our  sector.
  • Dynamic procurement: The Crown Commercial Service, which is responsible for the new pan-government research procurement arrangements, has opted for the creation of a Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS).
  • Data analytics: Data analytics has grown by 350% in four years. In response to this we are launching a range of services and training for the analytics sector this year.
  • New benefits for 2018: We’ve enhanced individual Membership with a new resources, content and webinars. We’re also launching the MRS Associate Network for employees of Accredited Company Partners.
