The University is delighted to be one of twelve UK universities to have successfully retained its HR Excellence in Research Award from the European Commission – two years after initially gaining it. Retaining the Award demonstrates our continued commitment to improving the working conditions and career development for our research staff.
Researchers are critical to the success of the University’s aspirations in research, innovation and enterprise. We have been working hard over many years to provide the personal, professional and career development support that our researchers need to deliver world-leading research.
This prestigious award recognises the University’s commitment to attract, manage, support and develop researchers – which, in turn, improves the quantity, quality and impact of research for the benefit of UK society and the economy.
