Welcome to the new BIAD Professional Development Network site!

The site will support researchers across BIAD in their professional development. It includes this year’s Knowledge Exchange in Design (KED) project, the newly formed BIAD Research Mentoring Initiative and  over the academic year we aim to include useful resources for Early Career Researchers (ECRS).

We will post information regularly about research developments in BIAD, let you know about events, and share information and resources that will be useful to you in your professional development. This is also the place where you can share your experiences, particularly if you join one of our projects. Many of you will know about the Knowledge Exchange in Design scheme and perhaps took part last year. The scheme is running again this year, with some exciting new projects. The Research Mentoring Initiative follows the peer mentoring forum we ran last year as part of KED, though more formal and designed to support professional development more broadly.
