The MRS team are on the road again in 2018, presenting at our Roadshow events around the UK

These informal events are a great way to find out what is planned for MRS and the sector in 2018, hear the latest advice on GDPR as well as ask the senior team here at MRS any questions!

Please do come along to pose your comments about the planned topics or indeed on anything else you would like to discuss. 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 with 500 researchers 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 and what you and your organisation has to do to be ready.
  • Dynamic procurement: It sounds like an oxymoron, but 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: The PwC Business of Evidence 2016 highlighted how 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 interactive digital Knowledge Centre featuring 40 ebooks, videos and articles plus six free Professional Webinars. We’re also launching the MRS Associate Network for employees of Accredited Company Partners who will enjoy some new benefits within the accreditation package.
