What is SEI

At the Senior Research Executive Institute (SEI) we learn to develop, enhance and grow the research enterprise and programs.

As a group, over 1.5 days, we will focus on fresh ideas, best practice success strategies and modern thinking aimed at generating ideal outcomes for the research scenarios presented and discussed.

Who Should Attend?

The 1.5 day workshop/retreat is intended for individuals and teams who have research leadership and management responsibilities for their institutions (Vice Presidents, Assistant Vice Presidents, and Directors).
