Research Staff Development (CREDO)
The University has established a new forum to provide cross-institutional support for research staff development . A co-ordinating group known as CREDO (Caledonian Research Excellence Development Opportunities) has been set up to guide this development under the aegis of the University Research Committee.
The group, chaired by the Director Academic Research Development, includes School Heads of Research, the Graduate School, the Research Institutes and Organisational Development, all of whom contribute to the development of researchers at GCU. A specific aim of the group will be to focus on developing research excellence across the University as part of the preparation of the internal environment contributing to the submission to REF2014.
CREDO will also draw on the expertise of members of the GCU Research Peer Review College in seeking to enhance development opportunities for research staff at all levels (contract research staff, early career researchers, principal investigators, research group leaders)
Each of the groups contributing to the CREDO programme will continue to run their existing staff development activities and these will be advertised locally and on this page. Specific cross-university researcher development events developed as part of the wider the CREDO programme will also be announced here.
