Coming soon to a desk near you, or rather, it will be on your desk by the end of this month, RKEO are pleased to announce that we have designed our first ever desk calendar for all academic staff.
The calendar runs from September 2017 through to July 2018 (no August entry as we all need a well-deserved rest). It props up nicely to stand alone on your desk. It contains:
- RKEO led events provided for BU staff, such as >150 RKE Development Framework training and development opportunities; key festivals, such as ESRC FoSS and BU’s Festival of Learning; key sector events, such as Open Access Week; Café Scientifique, and many more
- Closing dates for major external funding opportunities
- Information on key BU initiatives, such as student engagement, the RKEDF, and ethics
- Information on key sector wide initiatives, such as the REF, Open Access, as well as information on various funders and how to find funding opportunities
- Useful links and RKEO contact information
The calendar contains many images from the BU Research Photography competition, including this years winner ‘I am Ron’ by Chantel Cox, which has aptly been placed in December. Thanks to all those who agreed to have their fantastic photos included. We will survey staff for opinions on the calendar in approximately six months time.
