The Technician Commitment is a university and research institution initiative, supported by the Science Council and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation's Technicians Make It Happen campaign. The Commitment aims to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians working in higher education and research, across all disciplines. The University is a signatory of the Technician Commitment; as signatories, we have submitted to the Science Council a self-assessment document, which looks at the current position of technicians within the University, and an action plan which considers how we can develop this.
We are delighted to launch the Yorkshire Technician Exchange Partnership (YoTEP). We have secured funding from the Technician Commitment Collaboration Fund to allow technicians at the University of York and the University of Leeds to create links that will allow us to share best practice, skills and knowledge. Funding will pay for transport between the two sites, and is open to individuals and teams.
