CROS and PIRLS to run in 2019


Thank you to everyone who filled in the recent survey on running the Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS) and Principal Investigators and Reserach Leaders Survey (PIRLS). There was  a large majority of support for CROS (88%) and a slightly smaller majority of PIRLS (68%) to run as usual in 2019. As such the surveys will be open from 1 March to 31 May 2019. 
There was also a majority support for revised CROS (66%) and PIRLS (58%) to run in 2020 and then biennially.
