Research Bazaar 2024: Learn New Digital Skills

Research Bazaar (ResBaz for short) is a global festival dedicated to using digital technology in research. The ResBaz Aotearoa event brings together some of Aotearoa’s brightest minds for a week of dialogue and learning on how technology can help us manage and analyse data, collaborate with colleagues, and take our research stories to the world.

The 2024 ResBaz event will take place on 8-12 July. Sessions are online via Zoom, and you can browse the scheduled offerings here. Come to one or many; it’s up to you. All are free but please note that they are not recorded, so you do have to attend at the scheduled time.
