The HEaTED network events provide a forum for discussion and communication between technical managers, technical staff, and staff development/HR colleagues from across the regions. The network promotes training events, the sharing of knowledge, skills and best practice amongst technical staff and increased awareness of the opportunities and facilities provided by HEaTED and all member institutions.
