Response to the consultation on the UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers

Published: 15 Jan 2019 in

The UK 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 researchers and research careers in UK higher education. It sets out clear standards that research staff can expect from the institution that employs them, as well as their responsibilities as researchers.

The report from the Independent Review Panel, published in September, made a strong case for how the Concordat can make a real difference in improving the environment and career development for researchers. It was felt however, that revisions are needed, to reflect how the research environment has changed over the last 10 years, and to ensure the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers remains fit for the future.
