How we work
We run our training on-site at the host institution. Participants send us their publications before the event so we can work on the examples relevant to them. The content of the workshop can be adapted to the interests of the specific audience.
- Workshops are limited to 20 participants.
- Participants receive printed handouts.
- Organizer provides whiteboard/flipchart, projector.
- Cost of training is provided on enquiry.
For institutions with a high number of interested researchers, we organize the training on consecutive days. On the first day we run several seminars which all participants attend. On the following days we run workshops for smaller groups.
Contact us with non-binding expression of interest for workshops or seminars. For pricing, we require the following information: which workshop or seminar, your institution, potential dates, audience size and their fields of research.
