The Technician Commitment is a university and research institution initiative, led by a steering board of sector bodies, with support from the Science Council and the Technicians Make It Happen campaign.
The University of Dundee joins signatories such as Heriot Watt University and the University of Sussex in their aim to ensure visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability for technicians working in higher education and research, across all disciplines.
Professor Iain Gillespie, Principal & Vice-Chancellor of the University of Dundee said:
I am delighted to confirm the University as a signatory to the Technician Commitment.
We are one of the most research-intensive universities in the UK and offer gold-standard teaching and a very strong student experience, all of which helps make a great impact on people’s lives locally and globally. The world-class work we do cannot be carried out without world-class technical support, and our technicians are a vital part of our efforts
