Research Development Programme



The new Research Development Programme provides a structured development route for early and mid-career academics and research staff that is linked to the Research Development Framework. The Programme is free of charge and available to staff from any discipline in the institution. All development of this nature can be added to your CV and may lead to other avenues to pursue.


The programme is designed to enhance personal research effectiveness and enable participants to reflect and plan for future careers.

The events will be a mix of core information and practical, interactive activities aimed at embedding learning for participants, whilst providing links to additional development opportunities.
