CRAC has been a pivotal force in career development for researchers in higher education since 1968, when we ran our first project to support transitions of doctoral researchers to industry.  Much of our work has been funded by the UK Research Councils and we have played a key role in the UK drives for high-level skills, innovation and world-class researchers. This has included the UK GRAD programme and subsequently Vitae.  For details of current activities, see the Vitae Website.

Increasingley our work with researchers is international, helping institutions, research funders and others with an interest in supplying researchers' careers.
