Pure training sessions

Formal training is for research administrators/managers and staff with similar roles. Sessions will provide an overview of Pure and EBR, demonstrate common tasks and signpost to further online support materials.

To book in on one of these training sessions, please visit the Staff Development page. 

Pure drop-ins

The team also run Pure drop-ins where PGRs, academic staff and research administrators can come along for one to one help. Please see the list of dates, times and locations on this page. There will be further drop-ins announced for 2020 later this year. 

The drop-ins usually include a Pure representative along with other team members from RED or the Library. If there's a particular team within RED or the Library you would like to talk to (for example, REF or Open Access), please check with us in advance which teams are likely to be taking part in the drop-in on the day you're interested in. The drop-in is informal; no need to book.
