The British Council and the Professional Development and Engagement Centres in Kazakhstan are pleased to announce a call for applications to participate in the Researcher Connect workshops. 

The Professional Development and Engagement Centres based in Kazakhstani higher education / research institutions in different regions of the country support the development of the research environment in Kazakhstan and enable optimal impact from research. Each centre acts as a regional hub, offering access to researchers from all institutions in the region they serve. 

Researcher Connect is a series of short interactive learning modules for researchers at any stage of their career and from any academic discipline. It is a professional development course that focuses on the development of excellent communication skills in international, multi-cultural contexts. You can find more information about Researcher Connect on the programme website here.
