The RDM Quarterly Newsletter
Welcome to the latest edition of the RDM Quarterly Newsletter, where we have news and highlights of achievements from across the department. I enjoy this opportunity to learn about all your successes.
As summer approaches, our presence at science festivals increases. It is wonderful to see so many of you get involved in opportunities to engage the public with your research – an important part of our work. You can find out more about just some of the activities we are taking part in as a department on page 13.
Thank you to all of you who have contributed to the RDM website redevelopment. This large project would not be possible without your help and we aim to launch the new website by the end of August. We will be seeking volunteers to user-test the new site and I would be grateful if you could lend your support to the RDM Strategic Team as they work to make the website as accessible as possible.
I would like to encourage you all to read the RDM Weekly Bulletin, which is published every Thursday. This email is intended for all staff and students and is the primary channel by which you will receive important information, including on career development and training opportunities amongst other things. Please do read the Bulletin weekly to avoid missing out on opportunities. If you have any feedback about the bulletin, please get in touch with Emma O’Brien, our Public Engagement and Communications Officer.
As always, if you have any stories or opportunities you would like to feature in the Quarterly Newsletter, please contact Emma O’Brien.
Prof Hugh Watkins
Head of Department
