Research Leadership Development Programme
Our Research Leadership Development Programme (RLDP) connected senior researchers with great leaders to help improve their skills.
What the 2018-19 programme involved
The 2018-19 RLDP had two immersive parts, or 'learning journeys'. Each lasted for four days and all activities were run by our partner Monitor Deloitte.
The activities explored three basic issues:
- strategy and vision
- managing people
- leadership persona.
Part one: London, UK
This took place 19-22 November 2018 in London.
It looked at leadership outside biomedical research. Participants visited a range of organisations to meet the people in charge and gain new perspectives.
Part two: Boston, USA
This took place 11-14 March 2019 in Boston.
It looked at leadership within biomedical research. As well as meetings with scientific leaders, it included more hands-on skill development.
