Different skill sets and competencies are required to enable researchers to successfully engage in knowledge exchange and to have impact with their research. We offer an annual programme of training and development opportunities to researchers at all career levels. If you have specific training requirements please contact us and we can advise you on the best courses. We are also open to suggestions of training you would like us to provide and we also welcome offers from researchers to share their experience with others by running a course themselves. Please contact impact@socsci.ox.ac.uk to discuss.
