HR Excellence in Research Award
Mae'r cynnwys hwn ar gael yn Saesneg yn unig.
We are committed to empowering and supporting all researchers to conduct research at the highest level and to supporting early career researchers to build and sustain their careers.
In 2010, we became one of the first universities in the UK to apply for, and receive, the HR Excellence in Research award. The award was successfully retained in 2012, 2014 and 2016 following internal and external review processes. The next review is due in 2018.
The framework for how research careers in the UK should be managed and supported is set out by the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. It is based on the principle that improving development opportunities and career management for researchers will lead to improvements in research performance.
Implementation of the Concordat is used by the European Commission as evidence of an institution’s commitment to the European Charter for Researchers and the Code of Conduct for the Recruitment of Researchers.
Over the last 8 years, continuous progress has been made in the ways in which we support and develop our research staff and in improving the research environment in which they work, demonstrating our commitment to the seven principles of the Concordat
An overview of the University’s progress is available in the following documents:
