JOIN US FOR COLLABORATION WEEK
Another great reason to look forward to spring is our Collaboration Week, a programme of collaboration-themed content and events taking place between 14th and 17th April 2014. Starting with a webinar focused on the way our increasingly digital world is making collaboration vitally important, Collaboration Week will also include a tweetjam and a free public pop-up event at Somerset House, where visitors can participate in collaboration activities, discuss their collaboration needs and learn about the latest collaboration techniques through a series of lightning talks.
