Vitae News - 20 November 2018

Concordat consultation events


In parallel with the online consultation to inform the revision of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, a series of small half-day sector consultation events are now open for registration. The free events present a prime opportunity to discuss the review recommendations in further detail and feed into the consultation analysis.
The events are open to all who support researchers in the UK, including researchers, researcher developers, principal investigators, pro-vice chancellors, funders and other stakeholders, and are being held in Bristol, London and Edinburgh during December. 

An additional specific researcher event in partnership with UKRSA is being held, hosted by the University of Oxford. 

#Vitaechat: Open Research  - What researchers need to know Thursday 29 November
