Managing consultancy in universities and research institutes: sharing best practice and experiences

Research consistently shows that there are more academics/researchers involved in consultancy work than any other form of KEC. And consultancy offices seem to be engaging with larger numbers of academic staff than any other KEC support function.

But are we – as a KEC community – really making the most of this huge opportunity for our own institutions?

PraxisAuril is keen to facilitate a more cohesive ‘Consultancy community of practice’. The aim of this would be:
• To increasingly inspire KEC offices (and their institutions) to capitalise on consultancy
• To bring together and support those currently involved in managing consultancy services in universities and research institutes
• To encourage and support people/institutions considering a more structured approach to managing academic consultancy.

In the past, PraxisAuril has run training courses on managing academic consultancy. We are now keen to explore possible new ways to understand the value of consultancy, and help to share good practice and experiences in managing academic consultancy.

You can help! Your responses to this short survey will help us shape our future offerings to meet your needs.

The survey takes five minutes and you'll be asked a maximum of ten questions.

Before we start: if you'd like, we can keep you updated on the results of the survey and future courses or events supporting academic consultancy. We won't share your email address or use it for any other purpose. Just tell us your preference below.
