The Technician Commitment is a sector-wide, collaborative initiative led by the Science Council and supported by the Gatsby Charitable Foundation’s Technicians Make It Happen campaign. Durham University is proud to be a signatory of the Technician Commitment.
In line with this, we aim to enhance skills and career development for technical staff, recognising their integral and invaluable role in the continued successful delivery of high-quality teaching and research on the global stage.
Durham Technician Commitment Event 2022
2022 saw the return of Durham University's diverse and growing technical workforce coming together, firmly establishing our conference as an annual event and working together to celebrate the Technicians Commitment.
All of the videos and photographs used on our Technician Commitment website are thanks to Durham University’s talented Multimedia technicians: Steven Berry, Victoria Greener, Greg Robson from the Physics Department, and Michele Allan from the Geography Department.
