The University of Edinburgh became a signatory to the Concordat in February 2020 and published its first two-year action plan in March 2021. This plan had a strong focus on improvement of communication and information for researchers, and the creation of structures and mechanisms to support this work.
The second two-year action plan builds on these outputs and aims to embed and support Concordat implementation across different areas of the University.
Through consultation, cross-referencing with other frameworks and Concordats and a gap analysis, several activities were identified to structure the action plan and these were considered in the context of the three Concordat Principles
- Environment & Culture
- Professional & Career Development
The 2023-2025 Action Plan was approved by Research Strategy Group (RSG) on 18th April 2023.
