Researcher Development

The development of our researchers is central to the success of Lancaster’s 2020 strategy.

As part of our People Strategy, we are fully committed to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and have an action plan in place to support its implementation.

Lancaster's demonstrated commitment to the Concordat has received European recognition in the form of the prestigious HR Excellence in Research award, first awarded to the institution in 2011, retained in 2013 and again in 2016.

Lancaster’s Organisational and Educational Development (OED) team run a dedicated programme of researcher development activities.
