Who we are
Electv specialises in training and skills development for researchers, offering a variety of professional development workshops and online training courses. We deliver training to over 100 clients, including universities and institutes around the UK & Europe, in addition to Centres for Doctoral Training, the NHS and government agencies.
Our workshops are very popular with both students and staff – our informative sessions, opportunity to network with other researchers and relatable instructors (who used to be researchers themselves) all ensure that we are invited back to institutions regularly. See our testimonials page for comments from participants of our workshops.
Our online courses and live webinars are becoming increasingly popular with researchers from all around the world. The convenience of an online session or course appeals to a wide range of researchers and students are currently enrolling in our Electv online training school every day.
Electv is the training division of The Scientific Editing Company and we are based in Edinburgh, United Kingdom. The company was founded in 2010 by Dr Joanna Young, after she completed her PhD and postdoctoral research in neuroscience and informatics at the University of Edinburgh.
We aim to promote lifelong learning, discovery and communication and we work with research students and staff from countries all around the globe.
Our Annual Conference
In June 2013, we were delighted to hold our first conference on scholarly communication and lifelong learning, where we welcomed speakers from both home and abroad. This became the Annual ReCon Conference and we have hosted speakers from academia, publishing and beyond in Edinburgh every year since.
