Vitae Researcher Development International Conference 2020 - Call for Content

News article

Call for Content –  The call for content for interactive workshops, presentations and posters is open and we invite you to share your examples of practice, strategic approaches, evidence of impact, and emerging ideas in researcher development.
Proposals should address at least one of the conference themes:
  • In light of the changing research environment, is it time to change the nature of the doctorate itself; would radical changes be possible, and what is the role of researcher development in this context?
  • How do we embed responsibility for culture change at all levels of the research system, and support leaders, managers and supervisors with their responsibilities for research integrity, wellbeing and mental health, and career development?
  • How can we best prepare researchers to be flexible, adaptable, mobile, open and professional, and to thrive within their current and future careers?
  • What are the measures of success of researcher development; what is its impact, and to what extent does this align with researcher and employer expectations?
  • What have we learnt from the continued evolution of strategy, profession and practice in researcher development; how can we ensure continued relevance and value for the next decade of researcher development?
