Supporting career development of researchers

A revised Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers was agreed in June 2008. This replaces the 'Concordat to provide a framework for the career management of contract research staff in universities and colleges' announced in March 1996 and builds on this to reflect developments in the past decade in higher education and other sectors.

We expect organisations that hold Wellcome Trust grants to adopt the principles of the revised Concordat for the management of their researchers.
