We are very pleased to announce that Katie Evans of the University Library and Katy McKen from Research & Innovation Services (RIS) have been awarded a national award at the ARMA conference this week.
ARMA is the Association for Research Managers and Administrations, and it was during their annual conference that the award was presented for Collaboration in Research Management and Administration. Katie and Katy were nominated by Jon Hunt, Director of RIS, for their work on the University of Bath Principles of Research Assessment and Management released earlier this year.
The Principles were developed by a University wide working group with academic and professional services representatives and have been approved by Senate. The Group initially undertook an information gathering phase seeking to identify good practice internally and externally, including a survey via the ARMA Metrics SIG mailing list. This informed the subsequent development of the statement of principles.
The principles describe how all research assessment and management at the University of Bath is:
- Centred on expert judgement
- Set in the broader environment
- Supported by reliable data
- Tailored: one size does not fit all
Congratulations to both Katie and Katy on this award which demonstrates a brilliant example of collaborative working across services.
