HR Excellence in Research
The University of Kent attained the European Commission’s HR Excellence in Research Award in May 2013.
The Award requires that the University is committed to the principles laid out in the Research Staff Concordat. A UK-wide process, incorporating the QAA Code of Practice for Research Degree Programmes and the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, enables institutions to gain the European Commission’s ‘HR excellence in research’ badge, acknowledging alignment with the principles of the European Charter for Researchers and Code of Conduct for their Recruitment.
The University's action plan, developed in consultation with research staff and further details of the award can be found on the HR webpage.
