The following webinars, from February onwards, are organised based on the stages of the research lifecycle, so you can choose to attend all of them or just the ones of particular interest to you. At each webinar, you will find out more information about the support, services and tools associated with each stage of the research lifecycle. Service experts will deliver short presentations with all the necessary information on how to get started using digital research services and a guest academic speaker will briefly discuss a research project or a personal research experience, relevant to the theme of each webinar. All sessions will include a Q & A session.

Who is this webinar series for?

We aim to help you develop a better understanding of the available digital research tools, support and services and boost digital research skills development. For those already familiar with the services, this webinar series will offer the opportunity to find out about recent additions in the digital research services catalogue. For new members of staff and research students, it is a great way to start navigating what the University of Edinburgh has to offer to support your research. Early or mid-career researchers without computational or information technology background, in the process of planning a project with a key digital component will benefit the most, but everyone is welcome.
