Innovation Takeaway – lessons from the information environment

There are a few places up for grabs for Innovation Takeaway – our event to discuss some of the lessons from the information environment programme 2009-11.

The event is free to attend and will take place at Aston University’s Lakeside Conference Centre on Thursday April 7th.

This event is a chance for programme participants and others to reflect on major lessons and how these can be applied to challenging institutional issues in Higher Education such as how to reduce or avoid costs in managing digital assets, how local innovators can benefit the institution, and how institutions can realise the value of an ‘open’ approach.

The information environment programme has included work on preservation, repositories, linked data, library systems, research management, developer communities and various flavours of open. The event will focus on case studies from the programme and will offer opportunities for discussion around each topic. Margaret Coutts will be the keynote speaker and will be giving her view on how we should be addressing the challenges the sector faces. We’ll provide a takeaway resource pack on each of the topics the event covers.

Places for the event will be assigned on a first come first served basis, so if this interests you, please register now. An agenda for the day, travel instructions and a contact email are all available from the registration page.

The hashtag for the programme and the event is #inf11
