Join us for the monthly HDR UK Midlands Data Grand Round

— If we knew what it was we were doing, it would not be called research, would it? – Albert Einstein

The Data Grand Round meetings take place each month at lunchtime for one hour and have a specific topic for each meeting.

A research area of general interest will be presented, followed by Q&A and an in depth discussion.

The meetings are virtual (via zoom) and are recorded, so that our members who are unable to join us can still be part of these.  The recordings are then made available to view via our HDR UK Midlands regional community platform.  The meetings are chaired by our Directors, who give a brief HDR UK Midlands update at the start of each meeting.

If you or your colleagues would like to present at one of our upcoming grand round meetings then please get in touch.

A full schedule of the meetings can be found below.
