Successful cohort leadership and management ShareThis


The aim of this workshop is to bring together members of cohort teams to reflect on the current leadership and management of these studies, and to identify what additional support and resources are needed to continue to develop this part of our research infrastructure. It is also an excellent opportunity for individuals to make connections with other people working on similar studies.

Who’s it for?

This workshop is targeted at future leaders of the UK’s cohort studies. Participants should currently work for a cohort or longitudinal study team, and should be mid-career with aspirations to take on a leadership position in the future.

Please note: Attendance is free but places are limited to facilitate discussion. To ensure fair access, a maximum of two participants per study will be admitted.
