SPARC (Supporting Progression in Academic Research Careers)

SPARC (Supporting Progression in Academic Research Careers) offers the opportunity for Early Career Researchers and Academic staff with a professional background and new to research (Early Research Careers) to successfully develop and implement a research career plan alongside their existing roles.

The first cohort of 15 SPARC members started working together in May 2016 and will complete in May 2017. The programme allowed them “protected” monthly afternoons to learn about and discuss RKE related issues (publication, income generation, research management, etc.). It allowed SPARC members to exchange experiences and strategies, meet with experienced researchers and spend time writing and making progress on their individually negotiated work plans. SPARC members were allocated a Research Mentor and were overseen by a Sponsor. Continue reading SPARC (Supporting Progression in Academic Research Careers)
