Our Spring 2021 Web Series

What’s happening instead of our usual Network Conference?

Continuing the need for online events due to coronavirus (COVID-19), our Spring 2021 Web Series ran as an online replacement for our Spring Network Conference.

Beginning on 28th January and finishing on 25th March 2021, we hosted an ongoing programme of weekly virtual lectures (followed by a Q&A and discussion) on Thursdays at the new time of 2pm GMT. All events are free to attend and you don’t need to be a member to access them.

The Spring 2021 Series has now finished. Don’t forget to sign up for our new Summer 2021 Series, beginning on 15th April.
