e3i

Educate, inform, inspire, influence

e3i is a framework which will invigorate research in the Faculty and will provide an opportunity both to showcase our considerable successes and for our established researchers to share their experience with newer colleagues. The programme brings together existing events in the HR, RIS, Staff Development and Researcher Development calendars and newly-developed FEPS-specific workshops, lunchtime seminars and research symposia.

These events are broadly themed around the following elements:

Educate

The main purpose of the ‘Educate’ element is to share best practice in bid development through a wide range of faculty- and university-led courses and workshops. This also includes the FEPS HR Researcher Induction Programme, which is aimed at supporting ECRs and those researchers new to the faculty on arrival and throughout their first year.

Inform

‘Inform’ events aim to develop an understanding of the research environment, including funding, research outputs, data management issues and research integrity. A series of seminars and workshops will focus on topics such as research outcomes reporting, bid development, research data management and training sessions for post-graduate supervisors.

Inspire

The core of the ‘Inspire’ element is the Surrey Sevens symposium series highlighting FEPS research strengths and success stories, as well as facilitating cross-faculty collaborations in line with FEPS research themes.  

Influence

Key strands of the e3i ‘Influence’ element include awareness of research strategy and raising the faculty’s external profile.
