Research and Innovation Sessions (RISe)

RISe is Research and Innovation's research development programme

Research and Innovation supports you throughout the lifecycle of your funded research project

Get ready to supercharge the academic year with the return of LSE's Research and Innovation Sessions (RISe) for 2023/24! This research development programme is coordinated by the Research Development Team in R&I and delivered in collaboration with colleagues across the School. For this year we have relaunched RISe from the Research Information Sessions to Research and Innovation Sessions, to reflect the great provision of support for innovation and impact across the programme.

Join us to learn more about the process of applying for research funding at LSE, designing research applications, integrating knowledge exchange and impact into your work, innovation opportunities for researchers and many other topics, in sessions designed to help you advance your research and your career.

The RISe team can also help build custom training for your academic unit. We are skilled in training development for grant-winning and can advise on the best sessions to meet your learning outcomes including workshops, seminars, panels and learning materials (virtually and in-person). For support with bespoke training please contact your Research Development Manager in the first instance.

Knowledge exchange sessions are run by the KEI Integrated Service team through their training programme. The sessions are primarily aimed at researchers of any level. View upcoming sessions here.
