Lessons learnt Networks are key, you cannot create them overnight. Building trust is vital University politics can be horrendous Partnership with all is impossible You can only play ball with those who want to play ball Flexibility and light touch generate good projects. Early career researchers are rising to the challenge University finances are a quagmire ERDF !!!! Communicate, Communicate, Communicate……..
