Register your interest in the Vitae Researcher Development International Conference 2018

Date in September 2018 and venue to be confirmed

The Vitae Conference is the largest dedicated event that brings together all those with a strategic and practical role in developing researchers. Last year's event saw around 400 participants, the largest number yet, including researcher development practitioners, trainers, career specialists, heads of graduate schools, pro-vice chancellors, funders, research managers and other professionals from the UK and abroad.  Participants at the conference will: 

  • explore the political context and instruments for embedding researcher development, including the HR Excellence in Research Award and the review of the UK Concordat
  • discuss strategic and practical ways of sustaining professional and career development for research staff and postgraduate researchers
  • share ideas and practice with a network of colleagues who have a stake in developing researchers.

The conference will feature the 2018 UK Final of the Three Minute Thesis Competition 3MT®, that challenges doctoral candidates to present their research and its significance in just three minutes.
