Live Training!

Research Professional runs live, online training sessions on the second Tuesday of every month, 10:00 -11:00 GMT.

Each session provides an introduction to the Research Professional platform, demonstrates how to locate funding opportunities to match your interests, and shows how to set up email alerts to keep yourself informed of new developments.

You can view these demonstrations from your own computer, choosing to receive sound either via your computer’s mic and speakers, or by phoning in to a voice conference. You will be able to ask the presenter questions using a text chat feature.
