The University of Central Lancashire has retained its HR Excellence in Research award following a ten year review by the UK Excellence in Research Panel.
The HR Excellence in Research award demonstrates that we have again been recognised nationally for our commitment to the career development of our researchers.
Professor StJohn Crean, Pro Vice-Chancellor (Research and Enterprise), said: “We’re delighted we’ve retained the HR Excellence in Research award as it demonstrates our long-term commitment to the career development of researchers.
“This award is an important mechanism for implementing the principles of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers. Giving every one of our researchers the opportunity to develop their careers is integral to our future research outputs and collaborative projects.”
The University first received the award in 2010. It is given by Vitae, a non-profit programme that is part of the Careers Research & Advisory Centre Ltd and was confirmed following a rigorous independent review process.
It included the submission and publication of evidence of how the principles of the Concordat have been met; a report of highlighted achievements in the period 2020-2022 and a forward looking action plan outlining our commitment to the career development of researchers for 2022-2025.
