KE Concordat Review Launch
In 2021, 112 HE providers participated in the KE Concordat development year exercise which included tracking their KE progress against the eight principles of the Concordat and creating a bespoke action plan with priorities for improvement. A detailed review was subsequently undertaken to evaluate this exercise and gauge the impact of the KE Concordat on the sector’s plans and priorities for KE.
This event launched the publication of this review. Our speakers highlighted the key findings and recommendations emerging from the review, and shared some institutional reflections and strategic perspectives for the sector in this field.
