Researcher Development

The University of Greenwich has a rich heritage in innovations in teaching, learning, research and enterprise, and has bold and imaginative plans to progress these inter-related activities yet further.

HR Excellence in Research

The university has been successful in gaining the European Commission's HR Excellence in Research accreditation, demonstrating its commitment to improving the working conditions and career development of researchers. The basis for this accreditation is based on regular critical reviews of progress that direct its future activities, expressed in a two-year action plan. Details can be seen in the associated documents:

Overall responsibility for working towards compliance with the Concordat rests with the Research and Enterprise Training Institute, Greenwich Research and Enterprise, the work of which is supported by other groups. This Action Plan will be updated periodically to inform on progress in working towards full compliance.

Researcher Development Concordat

The University of Greenwich has signed up to the revised Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers 2019', commonly known as the Researcher Development Concordat. This is an agreement between stakeholders to improve the employment and support for researchers and researcher careers in higher education in the UK.
