In the spotlight: background information, news and announcements about the project Support Networks.

That Humanities encompasses more than just reading books was once again made clear during the visit to the Digital Lab and subsequent vid- and podcast room in the PJ Veth building. A lively panel discussion on research support provided room to connect and ask questions. Fortunately, there is still plenty to learn from one another. Hope to see you (again) at the next LRS on Tour on 17 May when we will visit the Faculty of Social and Behavioural Sciences.

After the successful first Leiden Research Support Conference in September 2021, we would like to invite you to the second edition on 14 June 2022. The theme of the day will be collaboration, with one another and with researchers. Mark the date in your calendar.

What to expect

In several rounds of workshops, we will explore topics such as contracts with third parties, project management, project control, data management and skills. In the afternoon there will be a best practices lab and the launch of the Research Support Serious Game. We will be meeting up live in PLNT.

Date: Tuesday 5 april 2022
Time: 15:30 -17:30
Location: P.J. Veth Gebouw, Leiden

Getting to know each other better and learning from one another. That is the purpose of the LRS Live events. The faculty of Humanities invites us for an interactive visit on Tuesday April 5. More information and subscription.

We're off! During the first meeting of LRS on Tour we took an online look behind the scenes of the research support staff at the Faculty of Governance and Global Affairs. A visit in person wasn’t possible, but you can also have a good working visit online. By paying working visits to different faculties, we can get to know one another and see how things are going with other support staff. Silviu Piros is Senior Grant Advisor at the Institute of Security and Global Affairs (ISGA) and he gave an interactive presentation on issues like creating a functional support network. The session ended with a fun and informative pub quiz.

The whole year on tour

LRS will be going on tour throughout the year. During the following LRS on Tour on 22 February 2022, we’ll be visiting the LIC. Put the date in your agenda now. More information will follow soon.

What does research support involve?

The first hybrid Leiden Research Support Conference – organised for and by research support staff – took place on 27, 28 and 29 September and focused entirely on organising effective research support. Read more
