Our Chair, Dr Andrew Allen, will be participating in a panel discussion hosted by Maynooth University Researchers Association (MURA) on March 22, 12pm.
This panel discussion will focus on a critical introduction to the new Research Career Framework in Ireland, which was quietly published by the Irish University’s Association (IUA, an organisation of heads of university) on their web page last November. It is expected that universities will implement this framework in its university policies. There was no researcher or trade union involvement in developing this framework. Researchers have grave concerns that it is proposing a continuation of the insecure work, with continueous temporary contracts, which has caused much distress and difficulties to researchers living and working in Ireland.
