Launch of the New Research Staff Hub!
Announcement from the Hub:
On 22nd April, Oxford’s Research Staff Hub was launched and the Concordat for Researcher Development signed by the VC, in a large online event involving research staff, PIs, line managers and support staff at many levels. The Hub says ”We were delighted by the clear high-level support for research staff priorities and tangible examples of what the Hub can do – with you and others – towards realising these. Here in the Hub team, we are working on responses to the wide-ranging questions posed before and during the event. You will be able to view these responses and an event recording within this week on the Research Staff Hub page. We also strongly encourage you to become familiar with the Researcher Development Concordat and what it means for you, your line manager, the University and funders, to take full advantage of current and future support.
