Technician Commitment

The Technician Commitment is a university and research institution initiative – led by a steering group of sector bodies, with support from the Science Council and the Gatsby Charitable Foundation – to help address key challenges facing technical staff and to support institutions in driving forward positive changes.

Queen Mary pledges action to support technical staff

Queen Mary has joined more than half of UK universities and several research institutes in a pledge to better support our technicians. 

Having become a signatory of the Technician Commitment, the University will now need to develop a 24-month action plan, outlining our plans to make sure that Queen Mary addresses the themes of the Technician Commitment (visibility, recognition, career development and sustainability) and details of how impact will be evidenced. A Working Group has been set up to address this, and if you have any questions please contact Anne Parry at
