The Collaborations Workshop 2017 (CW17—#CollabW17) will take place at the Leeds University Business School, from 27-29 March 2017. You can book your place here.

So what makes this event so unique and useful? Is it the breadth of people from research software? is it the IoT and Open Data theme? Is it the unconference inspired format? Is it the knowledge sharing? Is it the networking? Is it the mix of collaborations and competition? Is it the social programme? It’s all of these things and more!

To get a feel for how CW17 will unfold, take a look at the agenda (subject to some tweaks as we get nearer to the event). From lightning talks and discussions on the first day to more collaborative events and Q&A session on the second day through to the Hackday, all of our CW17 activities are designed to inform, inspire and empower those who attend.

Previous CW attendees have said:

“Lively event, mix of un-conference and workshop, open minded people, new ideas and tons of impulses to think further, networking opportunities not in a sense of business but with like-minded people willing to learn and eager to help and support each other”

“An exciting hub of activity and conversation where people from various research domains and roles discuss solutions to challenges they face to do good research”

“Well organised, good programme, good for engagement”

“Informative, open, honest and fun.”

“A fantastic use of time. I learnt a lot and look forward to CW17.”

So you may have guessed it by now, it’s you and those who attend that make the event so special! What are you waiting for? Register for CW17 today!
