Vitae is pleased to invite member HEIs to the London member networking seminar, co-hosted by Queen Mary University of London. This one day event is part of a series of networking seminars open to member organisations. The free seminars, hosted by our Vitae regional representatives and member organisations, aim to facilitate networking and practice-sharing among the staff based at Vitae member organisations.

The morning session is based around a priority theme, to encourage practice-sharing and networking. Expert speakers on the theme of engaging different stakeholders will provide thought-provoking input to stimulate discussion.

In the afternoon, there will be an update from the Vitae team, followed by a broad discussion of interests and priorities. Feedback from this session will inform the Vitae membership programme for 2017/18.

By attending this event, you will:

  • be updated on the most recent Vitae activities and plans
  • have an opportunity to inform future Vitae strategy and contribute to the development of the Vitae 2017/18 programme
  • engage in discussion, debate and sharing practice around engaging different stakeholders 
  • gain different perspectives on the value of researcher development
  • network with colleagues from member institutions and embed local networks and working groups
