One thought on “What is a Custodian?

  1. Submitted by email:
    Suggest for the future that the Nectar advocacy/leadership group be crystallised into something more formal – perhaps with defined ‘officer’ roles – with a tenure of 6 months, to keep ideas fresh, and without the burden of too much workload

    Hi Julie
    Yes NECTAR is planning to have an AGM on 25th July 2018 to vote in a constitution and a Early – Career Academic Leadership Team.
    Thank you for your suggestion!
