Our monthly webinar series has been so popular this year that 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.

They will be 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 if you would like to attend so we can send you the webinar link.

When your booking has been accepted, look out for an email containing the Webex link which will be sent to you shortly before the event.
