EU HR Excellence in Research Award

The EU HR Excellence in Research (HR EiR) award* is made to institutions in recognition of their alignment to the Researcher Development Concordat (2008; 2019) 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 valuing our researchers and supporting their development. In fulfilment of the award, we are always working towards improvements, some of which are captured by our Concordat implementation plan. This work is coordinated by the University's Concordat Implementation Group (CIG), co-chaired by the University's Concordat Champion and the Director of the Graduate School.

The University is reviewed every two years for the HR EiR by an external panel. The documents below overview our activity and plans since 2011. Our most recent plan covers the period 2022 - 2024.
