Research, Translation and Innovation
Norwich Research Park and Quadram Institute
John Innes Conference Centre, NR4 7UA
9th September 2019
UKSPA members have two free tickets for this one day conference. A number of other higher education and research organisations can also access complimentary tickets. The event will:
• Provide in-depth accounts of the operation and future plans of Norwich Research Park, and the design, delivery and functioning of the new Quadram Institute (biomedical research and translation).
• Use multiple sessions on Quadram, a case study of the University of Glasgow’s Clinical Innovation Zone (winner of the UKSPA ‘Location Setting the Pace Award’), and other sessions to discuss key issues in designing and operating translational research facilities and launch an UKSPA special interest group.
• Have additional sessions on achieving cross-disciplinary collaboration; effective design and use of space for collaborative and flexible working; technical careers and management in research and innovation settings; sustainable labs; and safe containment.
• Provide tours of the Quadram Institute; University of East Anglia’s Bob Champion (medical education and translational research) and New Science (multi-disciplinary science teaching) buildings; and – it is hoped – the NHS endoscopy unit situated within Quadram and a key element in its translational work.
• Have informal evening networking opportunities on the evenings of both September 8th and 9th.
The event is being jointly organised by S-Lab and UKSPA as the first of a series of specialised one day events to allow in-depth discussions to take place on a specific topic.
This event complements UKSPA’s two-day events. The next UKSPA two day meeting will take place in early November 2019.
UKSPA members have two free tickets for this one day conference. A number of other organisations can als access complimentary tickets. Details of these and prices for commercial organisations can be found on the booking site.
