- About Vitae
Vitae is a national organisation championing the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff in higher education institutions and research institutes.
We play a major role in the drive for high-level skills and innovation and in the UK's goal to produce world class researchers.
Our vision is for the UK to be world-class in supporting the personal, professional and career development of researchers.
To achieve our vision we have four main aims:
- Championing the development and implementation of effective policy
- Enhancing higher education provision through sharing practice and resources
- Providing access to development opportunities and resources
- Building an evidence base to support the researcher development agenda
Vitae builds on the work and activities of the UK GRAD Programme for postgraduate researchers and UK Higher Education Researcher Development (UKHERD) network for research staff. Vitae is funded by the Research Councils UK (RCUK) and managed by CRAC: The Career Development Organisation and delivered in partnership with regional Hub host universities.
By working together with higher education institutions and research institutes, we provide specific support for doctoral researchers and research staff. We also champion the common needs and interests of all researchers.
We work with those committed to developing the potential of researchers, including national and international organisations, government, funders of research, universities and other employers of researchers, and researchers themselves.
