UK Research Staff Association

The UK Research Staff Association (UKRSA) provides a collective voice for research staff across the UK by working closely with Vitae to nurture research staff associations and inform policy.

The work of the UKRSA demonstrates the level of impact and influence existing research staff associations (RSAs) are achieving within their institutions, and how being actively involved in such an association or group can influence an individual's personal and career development.

The information includes the experiences and of researchers running successful research staff associations. It summarises common challenges faced by research staff associations and examples to suggest how these can be overcome.
