Vitae programme 2015/16

Programme themes for the 2015/16 academic year.

This programme has been shaped by members, for example, through consultation at regional member meetings and feedback from events. It builds on the success of the 2014/15 programme.

The 2015/16 programme is split into four ‘Focus on’ themes, providing events and resources to support the professional development of doctoral researchers and research staff, the engagement of principal investigators and supervisors in professional development, and the continuing professional development of staff supporting researchers.
