The EU HR Excellence in Research award* is made to institutions in recognition of their alignment to the Researcher Development Concordat and their commitment to provide a supportive research environment for researchers. Brunel University London achieved the award in 2011, and have been successfully reviewed every two years since. This acknowledges our activity and plans supporting the development of researchers. In fulfilment of the award, we are always working towards delivery of our Concordat implementation plan. This work is coordinated by the University's Concordat Implementation Group (CIG), chaired by the Director of the Graduate School.
The University is reviewed every two years by an external panel in order to retain the award.
