Competency profiles

A competency profile defines the competencies required to fulfil a particular role. Competency profiles are typically defined by professional bodies or learned societies in collaboration with employers.

In the biomedical sciences, a number of professional bodies and learned societies have begun to take this approach. LifeTrain is collecting these to make it easier for the biomedical research community to identify and use competency profiles.
