Sense about Science are running two online workshops for early career researchers in the autumn this year:

'Standing up for Science' - Friday 18 September:
Find out how you can engage with the public, the media and policy makers to stand up for science and evidence in public discussions. Learn from experienced academics, journalists and policy makers.

'Quality and Peer Review' - Friday 23 October:
