What is ResearchOps? – Emma Boulton

In March 2018, the ResearchOps Community was formed with the intention of validating and shaping the practice of ResearchOps. Core to the Community was a global research initiative called #WhatisResearchOps.

A team of 60 researchers worked together to run 32 workshops around the world to ask researchers about their challenges and triumphs, and their expectations of ResearchOps. Since then, the community has grown to 1,500 + on Slack, a Medium channel, monthly town halls and more projects and initiatives have started.

In this talk, Emma will share what the community have learned from #WhatisResearchOps, and talk through the framework that came out of the work. Emma will speak on behalf of TeamReOps: all the organisers and thinkers from around the world who’ve donated countless hours to the effort and are making ResearchOps what it is today.
