Research support webinars

We trialled a monthly webinar series in 2019 that was so successful we will be repeating it in 2020!
 
The sessions will cover a range of topics to help support your research and will all run over lunchtime, 1-2pm. Each of the webinars will take the form of a short presentation, followed by time for you to ask any questions you may have on the topic. 
 
These sessions are open to any Cranfield staff member or student interested in research. You will be able to access them both on and off campus, but you will need to book a place through the DATES system.
 
Once you have booked, you will be sent an invite for your chosen session. We'll also send you a reminder shortly before the session. Look out for the emails!
