The University of Worcester has retained a prestigious accolade for its work with researchers.

The HR Excellence in Research Award, awarded by the European Commission, recognises support for the recruitment, career development, and wellbeing of researchers.

First awarded the accolade in 2016, the university was recently praised for its continued progress and "ambitious but exciting action plan ahead".

Professor Lynn Nichol said: "Retaining the HR Excellence in Research Award is international recognition of our commitment to these principles and to supporting our researchers and demonstrates our ongoing progress in developing our research culture and environment."
