Next year’s theme of Level UP focuses on the increasing speed, agility, scale, and collaboration required in research today, which has become even more important with the impact that COVID-19 has had on research across the globe. It speaks to how we respond to chaotic shifts in the research environment, whether influenced by emerging technologies, government funding calls, or focused ‘future proofing’ to ensure research projects are resilient and sustainable. Level UP also recognises the value and importance of skills training, professional development, and mentoring for keeping researchers and research communities adaptable and innovative. So join us in Wellington and online from 10-12 February 2020 to collect new experience points and Level UP.
