Through the NCUB Researcher Career Mobility Taskforce, we have sought to understand what more the UK needs to do to capture the full potential of our researcher workforce by encouraging and enabling diverse careers across sectors.
The Taskforce is issuing a call to action to government and funders, to universities and businesses, and to individual researchers to capture the substantial opportunity in front of us. We believe that every researcher in the UK deserves the opportunity to experience research in different environments and domains. This will empower individual researchers to build exciting, rewarding and impact-focused careers. It will enable universities and businesses to capture the value of a diverse and highly-skilled research community. And it will ensure the UK, as a whole, benefits fully from the next industrial revolution, powered by connected and dynamic research that happens at and across the interfaces of all sectors of the economy.
