At this session, Dr Victoria Moody told us about Jisc’s perspective on the future direction of research at higher education institutions in the UK.  She explained how JISC is responding to the sector priorities by focusing on a number of themes including: equality, diversity and inclusion, sustainability and resilience, knowledge exchange and impact, reducing bureaucracy, research security and responsible and ethical research, 

She also talked about what may be necessary and what might endure in any future direction of the research process, the impact of political agendas on research and the technologies that are forecasted to have greater impact on research in the medium term future.
