Researchers14 is a group of Universities, which represent 65% of the research staff community in the UK.


Its representatives are a voluntary group of expert higher education professionals, uniquely focused on research staff and their development.


We define ‘research staff’ as employees (i.e. not research students) who are on fixed-term funding, whether external or internal, and who are employed to do research.


In focusing on research staff, the group provides a strategic view of the people and culture of this community, and the issues affecting them.


Researchers 14 shares good practice in research staff development to inform partners and influence practice, evolving and developing national strategic objectives.
