Introduction

 
6% of survey complete.

Thank you for agreeing to take part in this survey.

This survey is for people throughout Europe who used to work as researchers in the academic sector but now work in other employment sectors, in order to capture understanding of:

·        Your motivations for making this career transition

·        How you achieved this transition 

·        What proved helpful in terms of resources available and what else would have been helpful to support you

·        Competencies you feel are valued by employers

·        How useful you believe your experience of working in academia was in preparing you for your current role

In this survey, the term business refers to any sector that is not academia, so it includes industry, corporations/companies, public sector agencies and government departments (but not their research institutes). We use the term academia to include universities and public research institutes.

All questions are optional, other than a few (marked with an asterisk*) which are compulsory in order to ensure that different types of users receive the appropriate questions. Please answer every question if you can, but if you cannot then simply move on to the next one.

It should take approximately 10 minutes to complete the survey.  Your responses will be anonymous and you will not be identified or identifiable in any report that we publish.

Thank you for taking the time to contribute.
