Review of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers

On day one of the conference, participants will be able to find out for the first time details of the Review of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, the Concordat Strategy Group response to the review and what the future holds.

On day two of the conference, there will be two Concordat related workshops taking place in which interactive discussion and debate is encouraged: 'Driving cultural change through a revitalised Concordat' and 'The power of partnerships: UKRSA and Researcher Developers working together to implement the revised Concordat'. Interactive discussion and debate is encouraged and 

Printed copies of the Concordat Review will be available to take from the Vitae stand and make sure you collect our new leaflet titled 'Future of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers' which includes key messages and details on next steps.
