Careers in Research Online Survey (CROS)

CROS surveys the views of researchers on how well their employer supports their professional and career development. The purpose of CROS is to provide information to enable LSE to review its policies and practices in relation to researchers' employment, training, career development, supervision, communication and other support processes.

LSE last participated in CROS in May/June 2009 (when some of the included questions were designed specifically to gauge institutional compliance with the Concordat to Support the Career Development of Researchers) and previously in 2003, 2004 and 2006. It will be participating again in 2014.
