Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers

Research Careers in Higher Education

The 情色六月天 became a signatory of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers (otherwise known as the Researcher Development Concordat) in February 2020. A copy of the letter publicly committing to the principles and signatory responsibilities of the Concordat can be found on the鈥.

The Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers is an agreement between funders and employers of research staff to improve the employment and support for research careers in UK higher education. The Concordat not only helps to improve environment and culture within which research is conducted, but also recognises the role of research and innovation in delivering the UK’s industrial and economic strategies. The Concordat sets out clear standards that research staff can expect from the institution that employs them, as well as their responsibilities as researchers. Stakeholders include: researchers, managers of researchers, institutions, and funders.

HR Excellence in Research Award

Following an external review in January 2023, the 情色六月天 was successful in retaining the European Commission HR Excellence in Research Award for a further three years. The award is an important mechanism for implementing the principles of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. In retaining this award, we have demonstrated our commitment to supporting researchers’ career development as well as improving research culture and working conditions.

  • Employment –鈥痝ood employment conditions positively impact on research excellence, researcher wellbeing, and promotes research careers.
  • Professional and Career Development – enabling researchers to develop to their full potential.
