Vitae member forums 2021


Book your place on Evolving the HR EiR Award process forum

Continuing our annual programme theme of community conversation, we will be hosting a number of Vitae member forums in April, May and June covering a variety of topics and challenges relevant to the Vitae community. These forums will be an opportunity to meet and discuss with peers from across Vitae membership and will be of interest to those involved in or responsible for supporting the development of researchers.

Immediate priorities for researcher development

Wednesday 28 April 2021, 10.00am-11.30am

Led by Dr Katie Wheat, Head of Engagement and Policy at Vitae, this member forum will ask: what are your challenges right now, that you couldn't have anticipated just over a year ago, and how can Vitae and our membership community collectively help to solve them.

People and culture strategy

Wednesday 5 May 2021, 10.30am-12.00pm

Clare Viney, CRAC CEO, will lead a discussion around the wider policy agenda and how it interconnects with the development of researchers.

Evolving the HR Excellence in Research Award Process

Wednesday 9 June 2021, 2.00pm-3.30pm

Chaired by Dr Janet Metcalfe, Head of Vitae, this member forum will consider the value of the HR Excellence in Research Award to members and how the process might evolve to support institutional capacity building and embedding of the Concordat Principles.

More member forum topics and dates will be announced in the coming weeks. If you have any suggestions for topics you would like to discuss among the member community, please get in .
