We are experimenting with some options for bringing a more diverse set of WIN members to present their work as a WIP. At the same time, we are overhauling the way WIPs (and wIN Wednesdays) are booked, to streamline the administration.
### Problem #1: Range of WIPs

WIN research can be broadly divided into four core themes:

The proposed changes to the practice and scope of WIP meetings seeks to address this uneven distribution of WIP presentations to: 1) more completely communicate the breadth of WIN research; 2) highlight and encourage researchers to consider the translational value of their work across the centre; 3) give equal opportunity to WIN students and Early Career Researchers to present to a broad and receptive audience.

#### Solution 1: Extended content
WIN recognises that considerable research effort and expertise goes into projects which do not involve the collection of new experimental or observational data. We would like to promote knowledge exchange around such projects by broadening the range of activities which are deemed appropriate for WIP presentations. This might include projects involving:

These promotors will work to 'nudge' people in their teams to consider giving a WIP. They will keep their ear to the ground regarding new projects and be a first point of contact for questions.
### Problem #2: Booking administration and process knowledge
### Problem 2: Booking administration and process knowledge
Previous to this resource, when a researcher wished to present a WIP, they relied on word-of-mouth and a few scattered guides to learn how to book the meeting and what a WIP entailed. Such undocumented processes contribute to poor inclusivity through the potential for unequal access to knowledge.

The meeting slots available for WIP presentations are also shared with other WIN Wednesday content (such as training and [Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity]( presentations). The Coordinators of WIN Wednesday content would also benefit from an efficient solution for booking their meetings against a shared calendar and collating appropriate documentation.

###€ Solution 1: Calpendo for WIP and WIN Wednesday booking
[Calpendo]( is used throughout WIN to book research facilities and meeting spaces. We propose that researchers use Calpendo to directly book their WIP slot, to improve efficiency and reduce the administrative burden in arranging presenters.
