Lancaster University has recently backed the Technician Commitment, a university and research institution initiative, which aims to ensure greater visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians in HE and research across all disciplines.
The Technician Commitment requires signatory organisations to develop and implement an action plan which ensures that measures are put in place to address the four themes outlined above.
The September launch event aims to give all technicians the chance to find out more about the commitment and to have a say in the development of an action plan. The event will be interactive, enabling you to have your say in:
what you believe is already in place at Lancaster which supports the themes,
what is missing and should be addressed through the action plan.
Outcomes from the event will then be prioritised by a Steering group to develop a three year action plan.
