HR Excellence in Research 2016 - 18 Action Plan

An internal evaluation of the University’s HR Excellence in Research Award was undertaken in 2016 to assess the performance of the University in meeting its obligations unWhilst a substantial amount of development has been achieved to support researchers to be the best that they can and to ensure consistent high quality training and development throughout their careers at the University of Exeter on all four campuses, there is further development and enhancement work that will be carried out. 

This is set out in the HR Excellence in Research Award 2016 – 18 Action Plan

Our top priorities are to:

Early Career Researchers

  • Continue to review and evaluate researcher development provision with ECRs
  • Ensure access to learning and development, career pathways advice and support, and effective PDR processes
  • Focus on the health and wellbeing of all of our researchers, and to explore the role and activities of the Academic Mentor for ECRs

Postgraduate Researchers

  • Further increase access to and participation in L&D opportunities, and career pathway advice and guidance
  • Develop the role of the new PGR Pastoral Tutor

University Researcher Community

  • Continue to enhance the research community and cultures for all our academic staff to ensure a sense of belonging and to build connected communities across campuses and with external partners
  • Work with the wider academic community at all grades and in all disciplines, to continue to create a united vision for Research Practice at Exeter and to increase engagement in working towards that vision
