Our Academy - Training and Career Development

ARC Wessex Academy is committed to growing the capacity for health research in the Wessex region.

We provide training opportunities and access to career development as part of our 5 years or research funding from the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR).

See our webinar from Professor Cathy Bowen - our Academic Career Development lead (recorded August 2020)


We also have the opportunity to become an ARC Wessex Member which allows you access to funding, research tools, support and expertise. We value our Faculty Members because they bring the skills and support we need as a research collaboration, and expand the capacity for research in Wessex. You can lean more about becoming a Member here.
