Join us for CarpentryConnect Heidelberg 2024!

Announcing a community event in Heidelberg, Germany, 12-14 November 2024.

We are very excited to announce the upcoming CarpentryConnect Heidelberg 2024 (CCHD2024), scheduled to take place in Heidelberg, Germany, from November 12th to 14th, 2024.

Following the success of CarpentryConnect Manchester 2019, we aim to create an event where members of The Carpentries community from Germany and beyond can come together to explore and discuss community-led software and data skills training as well as capacity building initiatives.

CCHD2024 will feature a diverse range of sessions. The event will include breakouts, posters, lightning talks, workshops and curriculum co-working sessions, all centred around the Theme: “Community-led training beyond academia”.

Attendees can expect engaging discussions, hands-on learning experiences and the opportunity to network with various communities.

Who is organising the event?

The event will be hosted by The Bio Network for Training (BioNT) consortium with all its international partners and in collaboration with The Carpentries and their community members. CCHD2024 will run parallel to the BioNT community event, fostering collaboration and networking opportunities. The organising committee, consisting of experts with various backgrounds, includes (in alphabetical order):

  • Renato Alves, EMBL - Heidelberg
