The University of South Wales was awarded the HR Excellence in Research Award from the European Commission in 2013 and has successfully retained the Award through a number of reviews.
The HR Excellence in Research Award reflects USW’s commitment to:
supporting the career development of its researchers
principles of the UK Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers
implementing our Research Strategy 2018-2028 which outlines our desire to provide a high-performance culture to attract, retain and develop talented research active staff and students engaged with business, industry and commerce and working on societal challenges
Since 2013, continuous progress has been made in the way we support and develop our research staff and improve the research culture and environment in which they work. It is our mission to see that USW's research staff are even more engaged in their own career development.
