Research Technology Webinar Series

In July 2020, Intersect launched a series of webinars tailored to researchers at all levels, on topics relating to research technologies and tools.

Free for all and completely open to anyone, these webinars are designed to raise awareness and introduce research technologies and digital tools, to prepare researchers for working in environments in which these tools are increasingly important.

While it isn’t necessary for a researcher to also be a database admin or a software developer, it is certainly beneficial to have an understanding of programming, of databases and their use cases, of survey tools and clinical trial management systems, and of cloud computing and high-performance computing.

The webinars also serve as preparation for introductory training courses in areas such as high-performance computing and programming.

Please see our course catalogue for further information on each of our webinars, and see the course schedule for details of upcoming webinars.
