Digital Wednesdays

Digital Wednesdays

Digital Wednesdays are a range of sessions on various themes outside of our core selection of training. They may have a specialist focus, or they may just be plain out there! The only essential is that they're on a topic that's remotely digital, and at least a little bit fun.

Open Research training

The Open Research team offer training to postgraduate researchers and staff through the Building Research and Innovation Capacity (BRIC) programme.

To book a session go to: SkillsForge - Postgraduate Researchers or LMS - Staff (login required).
