EMWA Webinars Programme
EMWA webinars help members to develop skills and keep up to date with new or rapidly developing areas. Most of our webinars are live, online seminars with the opportunity for participants to ask questions. For live webinars, you only need to register – you will need your EMWA membership details.
Live webinars are recorded and uploaded to the Webinar Archive soon after the event. The Webinar Archive is only accessible to EMWA members.
Each year we run a few webinars that are publicly available.
Laura Collada Ali and Jules Kovacevic are the EPDC members responsible for webinars. With the support of the webinar team Laura and Jules lead, plan and promote the programme, help presenters to prepare for their webinars, provide quality assurance, and run the live webinars. The webinar team also provides analysis of the webinar metrics.
