UEA Technicians Forum banner image

With the support of CSED, Liz Rix and Judith Mayne, SCI, have established the UEA Technicians' Forum with the aim of uniting technicians at UEA.  There are regular formal and informal events based around areas of interest to UEA technicians and what they feel is important.  Keep watching this webpage for updates.  If you don't already receive Forum emails and would like to please contact Liz Rix.

Technician Commitment

More information here soon, but for the moment take a look at a Briefing Paper Paper which will explain the idea of the Technician Commitment.  A Technician Commitment Project Board has been set up to explore whether UEA should sign up to the Commitment - they will produce a report and recommendations later in 2017.  Please send any thoughts/suggestions to Steve Oldfield, s.oldfield@uea.ac.uk
