The Researcher to Reader (R2R) conference is normally held at BMA House in London, but this year’s edition will be an interactive and hands-on two-day online meeting. The conference will take place from 23-24 February 2021. There will also be a number of optional pre-conference events from 25 January onwards.

One of the most popular features of R2R is the choice of collaborative, practical workshops which run over three sessions during the two days of the conference, allowing participants to explore a subject in-depth and to identify some tangible outcomes. Check the full conference program.
