Platform of practice

Following the launch in 2019 of the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, commonly known as Researcher Development Concordat, the Concordat Strategy Group (CSG) committed to the creation of a practice-sharing platform. The aims of this platform are to share practice, encourage engagement and inspire change and innovation in achieving the Principles of the Researcher Development Concordat.

Vitae have been tasked with gathering examples of good practice from across the higher education sector and sharing these with those responsible for delivering on the Researcher Development Concordat's aims.

We welcome examples of good practice from your organisation relating to the implementation of the Concordat Principles. We aim to gather as many varied examples as possible across different contexts and stakeholders including researchers, managers of researchers, institutions and funders. Examples should include some form of evaluation to demonstrate their impact.

We warmly encourage you to be amongst the initial contributors to the platform and to submit your good-practice proposals via our proposal form:

Submit your good practice proposal

The platform will be a ‘living’ digital library that will grow and develop over time.
