Swansea University recognises the crucial contribution that research staff make to our internationally excellent and world-leading research. The success of our research staff underpins our ambition which will drive forward research quality, create a suitable environment for research to flourish, whilst ensuring that the impact of our research is maximised. To this end, we are committed to providing a genuinely supportive environment and culture, where researchers can thrive both professionally and personally. Early Career Researchers (ECRs) are especially important to sustain high quality research and the University is committed to valuing and promoting career development for this diverse group of staff.
Swansea University undertakes to fulfil this commitment through the implementation of the 2008 Concordat to Support the Career Development of Research Staff and has developed a policy and action plan outlining how this will be achieved. We will regularly review our Concordat action plan, and publish our progress on these pages.
