7. EASE Forum Live!

Date and time: Friday, 25 June 2021 11.00am (BST)

Discussion groups: EASE Forum Live!

Following the success of last year’s forum, we will again run this hour-long session to consider questions and challenges for all editors, and to take the opportunity to learn from EASE member experiences. Each group will comprise approximately 12 people to ensure everyone can participate. Delegates will choose which session they wish to join. Each session will be moderated to help the group consider a question, discuss the issues it raises, share experiences and suggestions.
