Review and Planning Coordination

At the University of Liverpool, the implementation of the Concordat was previously overseen by the Concordat Implementation Group (CIG). Following a restructuring of the University’s development functions and the appointment of a new PVC Research & Impact, the existing CIG formally transitioned into a new Concordat Steering Group (CSG) as of November 2017.

The Steering Group is chaired by the PVC Research and Impact and incorporates a broad but focused membership representative of both the researcher community and those tasked with supporting their work and career development.

The Concordat Steering Group, chaired by Professor Anthony Hollander, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Impact, meets quarterly with the mandate to drive forward and monitor the successful implementation of the Concordat and the University’s Action Plan.

The CSG reports to the Research and Impact Committee in terms of alignment to other R&I activities, and in turn, reports to Senate and Council, and the Planning and Resources Committee in relation to planning and resource allocation matters. View the CSG Terms of Reference.
