Illustration of plant in front of open windowThe series is called Opening Remarks and is hosted by Clare Liggins and Steve Carlton. The first episode focusses on research data management and invites Dr Eleanor Warren, Chris Gibson and Bill Ayres to discuss the topic.

Steve Carlton explained: “The idea behind Opening Remarks is simple – we want to have conversations with colleagues from across the University about open research; how open research is supported and facilitated, but also how researchers embed open principles in their practice. We want these conversations to be informal, interesting and informative.”

The Research Services team are inviting researchers from across the University to get involved with the series.

Clare Liggins added: “Our intention is to record six episodes in this initial series, covering research data, open access, research communications, metrics and lots more besides. We’d been keen to hear from researchers about what they think we should be talking about.”

The first episode is available on iTunes, Stitcher, Spotify and Google Podcasts.
