It’s really good to see in-person events happening again this year – I’m sure we’ve all missed the opportunity to network and knowledge-share face-to-face! Please do come and say ‘hello’ to us on Stand 6, if you’re attending the BASEM Annual Conference at the end of the month.

Meanwhile, if you would like to catch up with some of the research and articles you may have missed in April, read on!

We hope you find them interesting – do let us know your feedback, and any suggestions you have for resources, studies or events for inclusion in future bulletins.
