Vitae, the national organisation championing researcher development, working alongside a panel from the European Commission, have announced that the University’s latest implementation plan for 2013-2015 continues to demonstrate our commitment towards supporting the professional development of early career research staff.
Supporting career development
The plan was developed by the Concordat Implementation Group, chaired by Professor Lu-Yun Lian from the Institute of Integrative Biology. Professor Lian said: “Over the past two years colleagues from Human Resources, the Centre for Lifelong Learning and from the three Faculties have worked hard to continue developing processes to support the career development amongst early career research staff. By retaining this European-led recognition, we demonstrate our continuing commitment to support those researchers embarking on their career and it shows our recognition of the contribution they make to our university’s research environment.”
Professor Dinah Birch, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange added: “Retaining this award is very important for the university, and I know how much work has been devoted to the development of our plans for the next two years. I’m delighted with this news and would like to thank those who have been involved.”
