Registration for these sessions is via Target Connect, the GRC event booking system, but please note that you will need to register for an account on Target Connect using your Kent email address before you can book any of these events.

These sessions are organised by the GRC as part of its new remit to support the development of colleagues who research throughout their careers and further information is available on our web pages for academic and research staff.

Professor Paul Allain, Dean of the Graduate and Researcher College, said:

“Our training, development and support sessions for 2021-22 will guide and inspire you on your career journey. You can either join a live session delivered by specialist academic and Professional Services staff from Research and Innovation Services, IS Research Support, the GRC and the Divisions, or catch up with a recording at a time to suit you. So there’s no excuse not to participate!”

Please note that most but not all sessions will be recorded and made available to view after the event.

If you would like to suggest future sessions or to discuss researcher development at Kent, please contact the GRC.

We look forward to seeing you at these and future events.
