Researcher Training and Development – EME Hub


This site is for postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in the Faculties of Environment, Mathematics and Physical Sciences and Engineering (The EME Hub) which provides access to training and development opportunities specifically for you. Our extensive course programme covers a wide range of topics and skills such as: research methodologies and data management; techniques for information search and organisation; personal effectiveness and professionalism throughout the research process; strategy, project planning and management; ethics and intellectual property; good communications with a wide range of audiences for your research and career management skills.

All available events can be booked via a simple to use online booking system. You decide what training you need and access it here.

Good all-round skills are key to doing effective research and to being a successful research professional.

Here you’ll find the resources, including information on training and development events to help you thrive and get where you want to go. 


 An exciting project will soon be launched by the University’s Cultural Institute.

The aim is to create a short-film prize for UG and PG students at the University that will allow us to showcase our strength in research in 'Digital Creativity' across the institution, be it the potential of robotic avatars in health care, a whole range of projects on 'Smart Cities', digital simulation and virtual reality, big data, 'digital democracy' and community engagement. This initiative will work with students to create a series of short films that will showcase key research projects.

We are actively seeking suggestions of excellent examples of work in the area of digital creativity, and would appreciate your help with this. At this stage all we are looking for are names of PIs and brief detail of the project that would qualify (or a link to further information). Please send two or three suggestions, if possible, by the end of September to Erica Ramsay,<

 Should you require further detail, please contact Professor Paul Cooke, Centre for World Cinemas and Digital Cultures
