To get this distinction, employers and funders of researchers have to demonstrate clear progress in how they attract, manage and develop research staff, which is part of a concordat to increase the attractiveness and sustainability of research careers in the UK, and to improve the quantity, quality and impact of research for the benefit of UK society and the economy.

nullProfessor Trevor McMillan, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for research at Lancaster University said on behalf of the UK panel which reviewed the submissions: "I am delighted to be able to announce that a further eight organisations in the UK have gained the European HR Excellence in Research Award. The award acknowledges the commitment of these organisations to continual improvements in their support for researchers as part of the strategy to increase the attractiveness and sustainability of the research base in the UK".

Jo Bradford, Director of the University Research Office at City University London said: "The Award recognises the work that has been done to date to improve the experience of our researchers, particularly research staff and doctoral students, and the University's commitment to this agenda."
