The Vitae Research Staff Conference brings together members of research staff who are active in research staff associations (RSAs) or who wish to become so. Research staff associations represent the interests of research staff and their colleagues by interacting with institutional management and administration, informing institutional policy, and facilitating the organisation of training activities and career development session for other researchers. Research staff associations can be crucial agents in embedding the implementation of the principles of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers (‘Concordat') and in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) Research Environment.
Who should attend?
- Members of research staff who are active in research staff associations or those who wish to become so, including those who do not have access to departmental or institutional RSAs.
- International participants interested in research staff associations
- Staff supporting research staff who are interested in establishing research staff associations
