Concordat online consultation


30/10/2018

CRAC and its key non-profit programme, Vitae, are delighted that the Concordat Strategy Group (CSG) has launched a consultation to inform a revision of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of 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.
This is an important opportunity to develop the pipeline of talent to ensure the UK maintains its leading position in research and innovation. We strongly encourage you to respond to the CSG consultation and share within your institution and through your networks. Submissions are welcome from organisations and individuals, including all staff engaged in research, as well as those managing or supporting research and researchers.
