This one-day event will provide an opportunity to share experience and expertise around the responsible use of metrics in research & innovation management, and to discuss issues and solutions with colleagues from across the sector. In particular, the event will discuss how Universities are responding to the recommendations of The Metric Tide report (http://www.hefce.ac.uk/pubs/rereports/Year/2015/metrictide/Title,104463,en.html) and how individual research managers can apply these recommendations in their own work.
The day will start by reviewing The Metric Tide report and the work of the Forum for Responsible Research Metrics, and then three Universities will present case studies on their experience of responding to the recommendations within their own Universities. Finally, delegates will have an opportunity to consider lessons learned and how they might implement change in their own institutions.
By the end of the event participants will:
This one-day event is aimed at research managers from university schools, faculties, research centres/institutes and central offices, who work with metrics in some element of their role, and particularly those who are responsible for determining how metrics are used with their department or university. This could include different types of metrics, such as bibliometrics, Snowball metrics, input metrics, altmetrics etc.
The session maps onto the management and leadership levels of the Management Information and Related Functions and Policy and Governance elements of the ARMA Professional Development Framework, and the Working with Management Information unit of the ARMA Certificate in Research Management.
