    Reforming Academic Career Assessment: Insights from the CoARA working group and future directions

    The CoARA WG Reforming Academic Career Assessment is organising a workshop on 25 June, 13:00-17:00 UTC to present its latest findings.

    The Working Group has gathered data on both organisational and broader national and international initiatives aimed at reforming academic career assessment. This workshop will highlight the key outcomes from its large-scale survey and case studies, offering valuable insights into the current landscape of academic career assessment reforms.

    Participants will have the opportunity to learn about the findings and provide further input to the Working Group on potential lessons learned, as well as share experiences from reforms in their own context. These discussions will inform the co-creation of an adaptable toolbox for academic career assessment, considering all university missions and the broad scope of activities, skills and competences of academic staff at different stages of their career.

    The workshop is free and open to all, regardless of CoARA membership. We particularly encourage researchers at all career stages, as well as representatives of higher education institutions and research organisations, to participate. Registrations are open until the start of the event.

    Best regards,

    Francoise Genova, with Amy Nurnberger, Devika Madalli and Emma Crott
