Researcher Connect Online

The British Council will be launching a pilot session for Researcher Connect Online – a Professional Development Programme for Early-career researchers (ECR) to train on communicating their research. We are looking to recruit 8 Thai participants to fully take part in the 12-hour pilot training, and registration will be free of charge. We would be grateful if you could support and share this with your network of researchers for potential interest.
