The established annual Vitae Researcher Development International Conference is the largest dedicated event that brings together all those with a strategic and practical role in developing researchers. The event will take place in Manchester on the 9-10 Septembers 2014 and the Early Bird bookings will open shortly.

We invite proposals for workshop sessions and special interest sessions. Workshop themes, deadline dates and costs will be released shortly but do start planning possible workshop and special interest sessions now so you get a head start.

The conference will address the strategic and practical implications of the following themes:

  • policy developments relating to the doctoral education and employing researchers
  • building institutional capacity for researchers' professional development to maintain research excellence
  • demonstrating the value of researcher development on research outputs, researcher careers, economic prosperity and society
  • sustainable practice to support researcher skills, professional and career development.
