Research Assistants' and Fellows' Forum
The Research Assistants’ and Fellows’ forum provides Research Assistants and Research Fellows with an opportunity to network with colleagues across the University, to discuss their roles and to identify areas where further support from the University is required.
28 Research Assistants and Research Fellows attended a conference on May 15th 2015. The conference provided an opportunity to discuss experiences of being an Research Assistant or Research Fellow at Huddersfield.
As a result of the event:
- Funding was specifically allocated from 2015/2016 to help deliver tailored training and CPD for Research Assistants and Research Fellows.
- Gaps in training and development provision were identified and a dedicated training programme is under development
- Dedicated Research Assistant/Research Fellow networking events will be held quarterly.
- A Research Assistant/Research Fellow's representatives group is being formed. Representatives will act as School contacts to disseminate information and promote events.
