Researchers' Forum

The Researchers’ Forum is an important platform for all staff for whom promotion issues are dealt with through the Research Review and Progression Panel (RRPP), including Research Associates, Research Fellows and Senior Research Fellows. 

Objectives of the Researchers' Forum

The objectives of the forum are to:

  • Provide a network for research staff to help ensure that they are fully informed about UWE Bristol's research and knowledge exchange policies, as well as Human Resources policies and other developments which affect them.
  • Enable all research staff to share good practice and common issues across all faculties, departments and research centres.
  • Provide a space to run development events specifically for research staff to support their career aspirations and be developed in research at UWE Bristol.
  • Take forward issues to the University on behalf of staff on research grades.
