TDR news item
11 June 2014

You have the opportunity to be part of a pilot study that is tracking career pathways of former grantees. We want to know the kind of impact that TDR training or research support had on your career. What have been the challenges, bottlenecks and opportunities at different stages of your professional pathway? By sharing what you have learned or experienced, you can help TDR and other funding organizations to better support researchers.

The survey is being coordinated by the European Science Foundation (ESF) in Strasbourg, France. It is completely anonymous — no identifying information will be collected, and contact information will be separated from the survey responses.

This is a stand-alone pilot that will test the validity and reliability of a questionnaire, which is based on standardised items from the OECD, Eurostat, Marie Curie, Wellcome Trust and US National Science Foundation (NSF). The goal is to identify the quality standards and processes to collect information from a diverse group.

If you are interested, please send us your email address and the date(s) of TDR support to Dr Launois Pascal, E-mail:

The number of places in the survey is limited and TDR reserves the right to apply the selection criteria defined by ESF and equitable gender and geographic distribution to applications.

Deadline for receiving applications: 23 June 2014
