It’s been an eventful few weeks, with BASEM and then the Jubilee to celebrate! We hope you had an opportunity to take some time off and enjoyed some festivities with your families and loved-ones.

Our Operations Manager, Lorna Hastings said “BASEM was such a joyful opportunity to see people in person once more, finally put faces to now-familiar names, and to hear some fascinating and inspiring talks from global SEM experts.  A particular thank you to our members who took the time to come and introduce themselves – it was a delight finally to meet you!  We look forward to more of the same later in the year.”

Here is a summary of some of the research and articles you may have missed in May. 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.
