Webinar Purpose

ECT launched its webinar series in January 2019, initially as a means of bringing together the members of our LTE User Group for discussion about science emerging from the long-term field experiments on ECT’s national register. We have now opened our webinars to a wider audience.

Webinars are held every two months for one hour, typically over a lunchtime to maximise participation. They comprise an invited guest speaker who delivers a 30-minute talk using on-line slides, followed by 30 minutes of moderated Q&A with participants. Anyone can participate on request (details opposite).
