Researcher Forum

The Researcher Forum allows research staff, managers of researchers, academics and staff supporting researchers the valuable opportunity to join discussions, hear developments, share practice, connect and be consulted on important issues for researchers. Topics for discussion/information can be directed by researchers and include, for example, professional development, representation and working within a research environment. We welcome all members of staff to join us for these great events and a valuable opportunity to connect at the University of Plymouth.

The Researcher Forum links closely with our work to promote the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and has been instrumental in our ongoing achievement of the HR Excellence in Research Award. The Researcher Forum actively enables researchers to influence policy and practice at the University of Plymouth and be represented at University committees.
