The seminars, workshops and opportunities in this subcategory are provided by the BDC. A more comprehensive overview of the activities provided across the University is available via STaR. Further information on the skills training and researcher development programme, along with details of other central University contributors can be found on the BDC website. Public presence is becoming increasingly important, both in terms of communicating a research project, as well as developing future research and career opportunities. All listed activities have been mapped against the Vitae Researcher Development Framework (RDF). Please note this is not a complete list of available training. New activities will be listed as they become available throughout the year.
