University receives HR Excellence in Research Award

The University of Birmingham has been awarded the European HR Excellence in Research Award.

The accolade recognises the University’s commitment to attracting, supporting and developing our research staff; our contribution to increasing the attractiveness and sustainability of research careers in the UK; and improving the quantity, quality and impact of research for the benefit of society and the economy.

This award will contribute to improving our research environment and to winning European and UK research funding.

Although the vote to leave the European Union means that we are now in a period of uncertainty, the UK is still a member of the European Union and Vitae will continue to manage the UK process for the HR Excellence in Research Award as normal.

Vitae is an international programme led by a not-for-profit registered UK charity dedicated to active career learning and development.
