We have expertise across a broad range of areas and can deliver programmes of work, discrete training packages, or work with you to adapt or create a programme to suit your team or institutional needs. We can also offer advice on research policy, research structures, and research ethics.

Researcher Development Programmes

Our researcher development programmes cover four key areas:

  1. Research Communication
  2. Research Funding and Policy
  3. Research Impact and Engagement
  4. Research Leadership and Careers. 

Each programme is designed to deliver the highest quality training and development to support the principles articulated in UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers and European Union Charter and Code for Researchers. Programmes can be delivered over three days or broken down into individual workshops.

Elements of all programmes can be adapted to suit an audience of doctoral students, early-career or mid-career researchers.  Although best delivered researchers at similar stages in their career, the programmes can be tailored to a mixed group. Groups can be either interdisciplinary in nature or consist of researchers working broadly in cognate disciplines.

The sessions within each programme work together to address important skills for researchers set out in the Researcher Development Framework. They can however be split out and reconfigured to meet the needs of your institution.

In addition, we have specialist expertise in:

  • research ethics
  • communication skills
  • equality and diversity
  • responsible research and innovation
  • practice-based research and support for practitioner-researchers
  • doctoral supervision
  • professional doctorates
  • structures to support doctoral education
  • research policy
  • institutional capability development

We have a strong track record of working with national and international partners and have delivered research capability development programmes in Europe, South America and Asia.
