Concordats and Sector Good Practice

QMU  is committed to complying with sector Concordats and contemporary standards of good practice that promote quality and integrity in research and KE.  We are committed to the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers, and were one of the first universities in the UK and Europe to be awarded the, HR Excellence in Research Award, in September 2010.

Fundamental to all of our work is supporting our researchers in maintaining the highest possible professional standards of research integrity to underpin the University’s commitment to the NHS Framework for Research Governance; and the proactive implementation of the Concordat to Support Research Integrity .

We are also signatories to the Concordat for Engaging the Public with Research and the Manifesto for Public Engagement which sets the expectations and responsibilities of research funders with respect to public engagement, to help embed public engagement in universities and research institutes. This aims to enhance the future of research and benefit the UK society and economy.
