Premia project background
Premia grew from a HEFCE-funded project based at Newcastle University from 2003 to 2005. Premia was designed for the benefit of postgraduate researchers, supervisors and those supporting doctoral researchers. However, many of the responses are useful for disabled researchers of all levels of experience.
The project aims were to:
- improve provision for disabled researchers
- increase the number of disabled researchers at UK institutions
- improve the quality of their experience.
The collection of resources, case studies and advice was designed to address the issues that were identified by disabled postgraduate researchers in the research phase of the project.
The aims of the Premia resources are to:
- give insight into the issues facing disabled postgraduate researchers
- provide resources and ideas for making research degree programmes more accessible
- help both postgraduate researchers and research staff tackle potential barriers
- highlight good practice in work with disabled researchers
- encourage the development of a more inclusive research community.
Vitae now manages the Premia resources and has integrated Premia into the Every Researcher Counts, equality and diversity in research careers pages of the website.
