Issue 29 | October 2020
Dear reader,

In the following weeks we have two exciting webinars coming up, starting off tomorrow with
the kick-off webinar on Best Practices in QM/MM Simulation of Biomolecular Systems. The workshop will culminate in a live panel discussion between speakers, sharing best practices and aiming to provide guidance to successfully use QM/MM in research.

In next week's webinar, we will display how to use the competency hub, which will enable the definition of different profiles within computational biomolecular research. This will help people identify the abilities they need for a specific role, e.g. computational chemist, software engineer and inform career choices and professional development.
