Beginning March 2024, the UCL Open Research Train the Trainer course will support research staff to become Open Research Training (ORT) Leads.

This course is for researchers/research-active academics of all grades (including postgraduate research students) who:

  • are interested in open research (also referred to at UCL as open science)
  • would like to increase their knowledge of open research 
  • would be interested in helping to accelerate the uptake of open research practices across their discipline.
