When engaging with Open Science it is important that we identify and address training needs across all of our audiences.
This page, along with our page highlighting the research community, is designed as a one stop shop for all of the training available across the university. Get in touch if you would like your training adding to our page, or would like to use the Open@UCL blog to promote your training course or event.
There are many sources of training across UCL, delivered by different teams online and in person:
- Metrics and Bibliometrics
- Research Data Management and Data Management Planning
- Research IT Services:
- Research Integrity
- Doctoral Skills Development programme
- UCL Learning and Development
- Information Governance
- UCL short courses
- Research Funding Management
UCL has a global reputation for providing research-based education, which includes a commitment to transmit education and educational outputs to a wider audience, and so naturally is strong advocate of Open Education. We have taken the view that the Education and Skills ‘pillar’ should also incorporate Open Education. UCL has actively promoted Open Education to staff and students, creating a presence for Open Education within the university. In addition, an Open Education Resources repository – OpenEd@UCL – was launched in 2018.

2022 sees the start of the new UKRI policy, and big changes for researchers whose work is funded by the UK Research Councils. By April, when the policy starts, all UK Research Council PIs, and in fact anyone whose papers include funding from one of the UK Research Councils, need to understand how the policy will affect them.
New for the academic year 2021-22 the Office for Open Science and Scholarship is organising a monthly series of talks, showcases and training sessions across as many of the eight pillars as we can fit in for UCL colleagues and students at all levels.
Thank you to everyone that attended the Open Access week session from UCL Press outlining their new project to develop Open Access eTextbooks!

The UCL Office for Open Science & Scholarship is collaborating with the University of Stockholm and Scientific Knowledge Services on organising an Open Science Webinar on 18 June.
Open Science started as a vision, aiming to address matters like research reproducibility and access to the results of publicly-funded research. The vision was generally welcomed by academic and research institutions and has benefited from a great advocacy movement. It’s high time now to build on practice and effective management.
The UCL Festival of Code (14-18 June 2021) celebrates the contribution software and coding communities make to research and innovation. Register for the opportunity to learn new skills, tools and insights, as well as to build your network across UCL.
On Monday 17th May, we brought together three experts for an in depth look at the impact that Brexit has already had on copyright in the UK and what could be coming next.
Catherine Stihler (CEO Creative Commons), Ben White (Researcher, Centre for Intellectual Property Policy and Management, Bournemouth University) and Dr Emily Hudson (Reader in Law, King’s College London) all brought their own distinct backgrounds and experiences to bear on this topic for a truly interesting discussion.
