We offer bespoke briefings, for example as seminars or at college or discipline meetings.

Recently, we ran a bespoke Symplectic / ORE session for Primary Care researchers, attended a Research Services Forum and ran a WEBINAR for postgraduate and early career researchers. Sessions can be as short or long as you need and will be tailored to the requirements of your department.
