Announcements & updates
CV requirements remain the same
By HRC Team - 21 May, 2018
At the start of the month, the HRC introduced a new CV template on HRC Gateway, with a request that researchers use this new CV for future applications. As a result of some feedback from researchers, we have decided to delay the introduction of this new CV and not require its use in funding rounds due to open in the next months.
The changes to the CV were introduced to help facilitate the assessment of a research team's expertise in relation to their application. The updated CV also provides a greater opportunity for applicants to showcase their track record of engagement with the community, end-users and stakeholders, as well as highlight the variety of ways in which their research has had impact beyond academic achievement. The changes were based on feedback from reviewers, science assessing committees and HRC research committees, and they factor in international developments in ways to assess the potential impact of research.
However, feedback from some researchers indicates that changes to the application process might require more preparation on the part of researchers, and longer notice may be needed. For that reason, we will continue to use the NZ Standard CV template until further notice. Any future changes will be communicated ahead of time at HRC Gateway and through the HRC's Update newsletter.
