Support for Researchers at Lancaster University
Lancaster University recognises the valuable contribution that all researchers make to our research environment, output and impact.
The University is fully committed to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and has put in place an Action Plan to support the full implementation of the Concordat at Lancaster.
Lancaster’s demonstrated commitment to the Concordat has received European recognition in the form of the prestigious HR Excellence in Research award. A UK-wide process, incorporating the QAA Code of Practice for Research Degree Programmes and the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, enables institutions to gain the European Commission’s ‘HR Excellence in Research’ badge, acknowledging alignment with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for their Recruitment.
