Library Research Support: Training and Events

Library events for researchers

The Library's research support team host regular events discussing trending topics in the research landscape through informal conversations ('Research Sparks' series) or boardgames.  These events are primarily aimed at PGRs and ECRs although all researchers are welcome to attend to explore new developments in open research practice. 

Watch this space also for one-off events in an occasional series of external speakers, including publishers or product specialists. 

If you have ideas for a topic or event related to open research then please do get in touch:
