ELECDEM workshops and conferences

The ELECDEM training programme included a series of four workshops and two conferences which were scheduled during the first 3 years of the project. Attendance at these six core project events was obligatory for the ELECDEM researchers.  External researchers were also invited to participate in these core events, and a limited number of spaces were available.

In addition to these core events, our project partners organised their own in-house workshops, courses, lectures and seminars. A selection of these events are also shown here but this is not a complete listing.

There is a large amount of training material available to view or download as a result of the ELECDEM workshops and conferences.  Presentation slides can be downloaded from these pages, we also have a YouTube channel showing videos of the training sessions and presentations.
