Collaboration Puzzle

Weekly Round-up #127

We are now officially in summer and this Weekly Round-up this week is rather light. We thought this might be a good opportunity to remind our Members of some of the resources VALIDATE has to offer:

  • Forming Collaborations: You can use our Members Directory and Collaborating Institutes pages to search for VALIDATE members with whom you may wish to collaborate.
  • New Members: If you know colleagues or friends who would be a good fit for the growing VALIDATE Community, direct them to the Benefits of Membership page and encourage them to join.
  • External Opportunities: We keep our Jobs, Funding, and Events pages up to date. 
  • Keep in touch: Follow us on Twitter and connect with us on LinkedIn to keep to date with everything VALIDATE.
