Transforming the culture and practice of research supervision

The Next Generation Research SuperVision Project (RSVP) is a four-year £4.6million project that will review, enhance and shape doctoral supervision practice.

By working with providers of doctoral education (Universities and HEIs), industry, funders and researchers, we aim to transform research supervision culture and practice. We want to understand what works in different contexts, identify what effective supervision practice looks and feels like, and determine how supervision practice is both supported and rewarded.

About RSVP

Funded by Research England and supported by all seven UKRI research councils, the Wellcome Trust and the Crick Institute, our project has been designed to transform the culture and practice of research supervision.

Our team and partners

As a collaborative, creative and transformational project intended to bring about culture change, our work is only possible because of the many partners who are working with us.

Expression of interest

The call for practitioner partners is now closed.

Could your research organisation help to shape doctoral supervision?

Joining the RSVP project offers research organisations a unique opportunity to become key contributors in advancing research supervision practices. Your organisation will gain access to innovative practices and tap into a pioneering community of academic and industry leaders.
