Why develop researchers?

Researchers are key members of staff for any research-performing organisation. Enabling them to fulfill their potential as professionals will contribute to achieving the strategic aims of your institution.

In addition, policy makers at institutional, national and international level expect researchers to be supported to:

  • develop a wide range of professional knowledge and abilities to enable them to make the most of their high level research skills
  • contribute to society and the economy through successful careers in wide-ranging roles and across job sectors.

Excellent provision to support researchers’ professional development not only helps you to achieve these aims but enhances your reputation, helping you to attract international research students, engage and retain the most talented and support a diverse research workforce.
