What previous attendees have enjoyed about the event:
“Fantastic sessions with practical advice and personal stories.”
“Wide, diverse range of talks but all relevant to ECRs. Also, the friendly, welcoming environment and atmosphere.”
“The best aspect of this event was the sheer variety of presentations. From PPI to grant writing and academic career to industry, each one served as a springboard to strike up further conversation with others. All presenters and attendees were approachable, which created a real sense of wanting to learn and share knowledge/ideas. The lunch was good too. I would strongly recommend this event and commend the organisers for their great work.”
“The variety of presentations, the friendly atmosphere made it easy to network with fellow ECRs and with the presenters.”
