Researcher Development

The Researcher Development Framework was designed by policy makers in HE, staff working with researchers, academics, employers and researchers themselves and is endorsed by many key national organisations.

These Researcher Development Programme Webinars support UCAs commitment to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and the Concordat to Support Research Integrity.

Webinars for 2016 -17
