COVID-19: The Impact on Technicians in UK Higher Education & Research

The Technician Commitment, in partnership with the Science Council, Institute of Physics, Royal Society of Chemistry, Royal Society of Biology, Wellcome and the Research England funded TALENT programme are undertaking a survey to understand more fully the impact of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) on the technical community in higher education and research.

The technical community is at the forefront of the higher education and research sector’s response to the COVID-19. This survey will enable us to learn more about the impact of the pandemic on working practices for technicians and to explore how, as a group of organisations, we can shine a light on technical contributions at this extraordinary time and best support technical colleagues moving forwards.

The survey can be found here: https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/TechnicianCommitmentCOVID19/

The survey will take approximately 10 minutes. Responses are completely anonymous.

Your participation will inform future understanding of the roles of technicians and shape future resources and provision for the technical community.

Please share this survey with your technical colleagues and networks.
