Since it’s launch in April 2014, the Digital Economy Network has funded, supported and delivered a variety of PGR training and development activities relevant to the DEN five themes. So far over 60 events and activities have been delivered for doctoral researchers and staff within the DEN community, including:
- Annual residential Digital Economy Summer Schools for PhD/EngD students have been delivered in July each year, and hosted by a different CDT each time (DEN Theme 2)
- National PhD student entrepreneurship training workshops in Manchester and London (DEN Theme 3)
- Several two-day national cross-CDT writing retreats for PhD/EngD Students have been delivered across various locations in the UK (DEN Theme 2)
- Specialist peer-led collaborative national training workshops for a variety of digital economy research areas (DEN Theme 4).
DEN will continue to support relevant events that add value to the Digital Economy research provision until the project end date, which is 30 September 2019.
The Network puts equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) at the heart of all its activities, and we expect our events to accommodate and attract a diverse group of participants as possible. In particular, we ask all DEN events to demonstrate that they have considered EDI in their planning and design, particularly in considering membership of panels or invitations to keynote speakers.
