About the Vitae Researcher Development Framework Planner
The Vitae RDF Planner is a web based application which organisations and individuals can use to map professional development using the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF)
Researchers can use the RDF Planner for professional development, to identify strengths, action plan, review achievements and create a portfolio of evidence. Through the RDF Planner organisations can direct researchers to suitable courses and development opportunities linked to the RDF.
Researchers can also use Vitae's PDP ROC (Professional Development Planning for Researchers Online Course), together with the RDF Planner and institutional provision, to help undertake and enhance their professional development planning activities.
