Researcher Development Programme

Workshops coming up in December are listed below, and you can book your place via our Researcher Development webpages.

We ran our first successful webinar last week, thanks to those researchers who joined us in the online training led by Bethany Logan (who also features in our 'What do you do' item this month). Feedback from researchers suggested these webinars are a really welcome addition to our programme, so we're looking forward to bringing you more topics in this format in the new year.
