We're delighted that the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (www.vitae.ac.uk/rdf) has been embraced by so many institutions, both as the basis for structuring researcher development programmes and as a way l to support individual professional development.
The Researcher Development Framework is available for free, non-commercial use by UK higher education institutions.
We have recently reviewed our conditions of Use for the Vitae Researcher Development Framework to provide a clearer explanation of the aims and objectives of the conditions of use and to make it clearer how the RDF should be referenced. Alongside this we have improved access to graphics and resources on the website to support the use of the RDF.
We are asking you to take a look at the ways your institution is using and referencing the Vitae Researcher Development Framework, including how it is presented online, to check that you are meeting the conditions of use. If you have any questions, need support or have ideas for development that you would like to discuss, please get in touch with us - we would welcome any queries or suggestions you may have.
