New Technician Forum & Social event (SLS and WMS)
A new Technician Forum has been set up to bring together technicians from SLS and WMS with the aim of sharing information relating to the Technician Commitment. Backed by the University of Warwick, the Technician Commitment is a sector-wide initiative led by the Science Council and the Gatsby Foundation, aimed at addressing key challenges facing technical staff.
If you are a technician, please follow our forum at
Also, come and meet your fellow technicians at a social event in the SLS Atrium at 3pm on 22 August.
We have drawn together a list of prizes available for which technical staff can be nominated.
We hope this will bring an increase in visibiltity and improve the recognition for our excellent technical staff.
We will be adding more prizes to the website as we find out about them. The dates vary throughout the year so please follow the links for further information on how to nominate someone for the prizes.
Nominations are now open for the Science Council CPD awards:
Registered Scientist (RSci),
Chartered Scientist (CSci) and
Chartered Science Teacher (CSciTeach) status.
The University of Warwick recognises the importance of technical staff in conducting research within the University.
We wish to ensure Fair Attribution is obtained for the work done by technicians and we hope this will increase visibility and recognition for technicians and the facilities they run.
All researchers at the University of Warwick should be aware of the fair attribution guidelines in advance of conducting their experiments.
