Vitae, in collaboration with icould, is undertaking a pilot project to produce around 20 films of the career stories of people with a research background, currently working within and outside HE and from a variety of backgrounds, disciplines and levels.
There are two main aims for this project:
- to create a series of films to illustrate the range and variety of careers that people with a research training go on to do, in order to highlight turning and tipping points
- to create a set of career profiles to begin to demonstrate the wider impact of research careers on society/the economy
The individual films will be available in Autumn. In the meantime please click on our show reel below to give you a snap shot of what is to come….
