Thank you again to all research staff who completed the Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS) 2017 in May.


The Research Staff Working Group is currently leading on the development of actions to address issues raised. Once these actions have been agreed they will be published in the HR Excellence in Research Award action plan. The actions will form part of our actions plan to retain the ‘HR excellence in Research Award’
