Tell us about your experience with the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and how its impacted your career.

Whether you’re a researcher, principal investigator, early career researcher, researcher developer, research leader or involved in implementing the concordat at your institution, you can submit your story for publication on our featured Researcher Stories. This feed will showcase how improvements in employment, culture and professional development provision have had real-life impact on the research and innovation community.

We would like to hear about initiatives that have improved your career, lifestyle, the research culture at your university, your department, research project or leadership skills. We would also like to hear about interventions that have improved employment conditions, culture, skills or opportunities for researchers and innovators at your institution or organisation. Feel free to write from personal experience, provide examples of your project or collaborate with colleagues to produce a short piece.

Your story should be between 200-800 words, have a short and sharp title and include hyperlinks to any relevant webpages for readers to find out more about your project, initiative, or team.

If you’d like to get in touch before you start writing your story, we are very happy to support the process. Once submitted, your story will be reviewed by the secretariat for the concordat, who will support you through the editorial process before publication. There is no comments section on Researcher Stories.

You can submit your story or the button on the homepageNews. We look forward to co-creating a place to share stories across the research and innovation community!
