Development Needs Analysis

The Development Needs Analysis (GRS1) form is a mandatory requirement of research programmes at the University of Birmingham and must be completed on an annual basis. You can find more information about the DNA process here.  This highly practical workshop supports the process by introducing you to Vitae’s Researcher Development Framework (on which the structure of the form is based) and supports you in identifying your development needs.
