SURFACE develops skills base of early career researchers

Thursday 24 May 2012

SURFACE co-founder, Rita Newton, has spoken at a day-long workshop aimed at developing the stakeholder liaison skills of early career researchers.

Organised by the KT-EQUAL consortium and the New Dynamics of Ageing Programme, the event focused on knowledge exchange; exploring how research can influence the delivery of services, enhance practice, inform policy and drive new product development.

Of particular relevance to researchers in the field of ageing, it involved presentations, debates and activity-led sessions. Rita spoke as part of a panel on Good Practice in Knowledge Exchange, together with Adam Oliver (BT Innovate & Design), Elizabeth White (College of Occupational Therapists) and Laura Bradley (Institute for Public Policy Research).
