Technician Support Steering Group
The Technician Support Steering group aims to disseminate information on opportunities available to technicians, to provide a means to recognise the achievements of technical staff, and to create a visible, connected, community for this population within the University of Edinburgh.
Our 1000 technicians are highly trained and experienced individuals with diverse skills working across all subject areas. Technical staff play an important role in research, teaching and supporting our students.
The group is leading on the development and implementation of the Technician Commitment action plan.
The group has representatives from:
- Technical Service Managers
- Principal Investigators
- Representative from Unite (the Union for technical staff)
- Human Resources
- Institute of Academic Development
- Social Responsibility & Sustainability
