HR excellence in research
The University has been successful in gaining the European Commission’s HR Excellence in Research Award. The award recognises the systems and practices we have in place to support researchers’ career and professional development in line with the national Research Concordat (which we are implementing via the University’s Code of Practice for the Employment and Career Development of Research Staff). It acknowledges that we are committed to looking after our research staff and their development.
The University will display the logo across our websites. Departments are encouraged to display the logo, and/or refer to the award, as evidence of the University’s commitment to supporting its researchers. It should be used in grant applications and on web pages and other materials for current and prospective research staff. Download the logo and guidelines
