23 Things International is a unique global collaboration. This online programme introduces researchers to powerful online research tools for all disciplines, and profile-building opportunities.

The 2021 programme has now finished, but you are welcome to browse the 'Things' for information on a variety of online tools, profile-building opportunities, and discussions of how to get the most out of your research. (The poll below mentions what participants from this year were looking forward to; we hope we delivered!)

We will open again in March 2022 with refreshed content, additional partner institutions, and a whole host of fun new features.

If you are interested in the programme - as a doctoral researcher, academic, or other university staff - please do contact your local team member. Details in the 'Partners and Contributors' section.
