Public Engagement - training
Prof Mark Reed (Fast Track Impact) is offering a series of free webinars on impact, including integrating impact into your UKRI Case for Support, and writing impact for H2020 proposals.
Over the coming weeks, Prof Mark Reed of Fast Track Impact is going to be doing a series of free interactive webinars. Bookings have opened for the first two webinars and new sessions will be added regularly, so keep checking back. Participants get exclusive access to a PDF copy of The Research Impact Handbook and a video recording of the session. However, places are limited to 100 per webinar, so book now to avoid disappointment.
Fast Track Impact webinars and online courses are designed to be more interactive than a traditional face-to-face course, and are a great way to stay connected to colleagues with similar interests when face-to-face contact isn’t possible.
