Vision and Mission

New @EUScienceInnov -funded report out on precarious careers in research and policy op-tions. Thanks to a great @WIFOat team and cooperation with @TechnopolisGrp and #Idea-Consult.

VISION: Nurturing communities of researchers

ICoRSA (International Consortium of Research Staff Associations) will support the development of national associations by facilitating communication across borders and sharing of best practices. We envisage that the consortium will play an important role in the global research enterprise by enhancing the productivity and experiences of research staff, postdoctoral scholars, and early-career researchers, who together are the life-blood of the global research enterprise.

MISSION: Providing a global voice for research staff and postdoctoral scholars

Researchers are a highly mobile part of the global research enterprise. Policy concerning research careers is determined internationally through a variety of global organisations. At present, there is no consistent voice representing research staff and postdoctoral scholars in international policy. The International Consortium of Research Staff Associations (ICoRSA) will provide this collective voice, advocate on behalf of research staff and postdoctoral scholars, and inform international research policy.

The mission of ICoRSA is to expand its network among existing researcher associations, but more importantly to sow the seeds of formation of new associations in countries where RSA do not yet exist. In the emerging economies in particular, ICoRSA aims to play an ambassadorial role in developing new RSA and promoting research in general.

The Mission of ICoRSA is to provide a “VOICE” for researchers internationally on, among others, (precarious) research careers, intersectoral and international mobility, gender equality and diversity.
