Research Staff Conference Aims
to provide information about the support available for research staff and the University’s policy and obligations to them, both Institution-wide and at School level
to increase awareness of national developments in relation to the management and career development of research staff;
to provide research staff with the opportunity to meet and discuss their experiences with other researchers from across the Institution, and to feed their views into the management structure of the University;
to provide researchers with formal and informal opportunities to reflect upon their own development and career progression and the relationship between this and external, structural constraints.
The Research Staff Conference is funded by the monies received by the University from the UK Research Councils for the career development training of research staff ('Roberts money').
