Inkpath – our researcher development platform

C-DICE is using Inkpath as the mechanism for researchers to register for events, apply for placements and secondments, and book training. Inkpath is unique, because as a researcher it will also track your activities, allow space for reflection, and enable you to create a pathway for your own professional development and plan for your next career steps.

If there are any issues with signing up to Inkpath, please contact us on cdice-enquiries@lboro.ac.uk.
