The UK PRISM Network was founded by Dr Anja Roeding in April 2020. The network is a grassroots organisation, which aims to:
- Bring the widely dispersed PRISM community across the UK Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) together.
- Engage in particular with funders (e.g. UKRI) and employers (mainly universities) to drive a cultural shift in research teams at HEIs to include better recognition and progression pathways for PRISM roles.
The PRISM network works to address three interlinked key challenges
around PRISM roles:
- Career progression & professional development
- Recruitment & job security
- Recognition & belonging
As of 1 January 2023, the Network is led by Dr Isabella von Holstein
, Imperial College London.
