Career and talent development at the Academy

The Academy considers talent development, training, and the right support for general skills development important. That’s why it has set up the Career & Development team. Career & Development is there to answer all your questions about career development and training. 

The Center for Career & Development offers career development and training activities for researchers, management, and research support staff, whether they are in their twenties and just starting out or in their fifties and eager to gain more experience.

The Local Consultations Committee (employer and union representatives) regards career development as crucially important for the organisation and its employees and has therefore agreed that part of the employee benefits budget should be spent on such activities.

Sustainable career development at the Academy: the basics

'One important issue is the sustainable career development of all Academy staff. Sustainable career development encompasses long-term employment participation within or beyond the organisation, with benefits for all concerned and regardless of age. It involves promoting healthy, safe, motivating, productive and instructive work, at every stage of a person’s career and with an eye for diversity.'
