Invitation to the UoN Research Conference: 20th and 21st June 2018

New Strategy JPegThe Graduate School and the Faculties would like to invite you to the first jointly run UoN Research Conference, which will be held from 20th to 21st June 2018.

We have almost 50 oral presentations from postgraduate researchers and staff from across the University over the two days, displaying about 30 research posters and are also holding our second 3-Minute Thesis competition. The four faculties and The Graduate School have got together to plan this 2-day conference, which crosses faculties and disciplines. Please see the conference website for the schedule, and to register your place at the conference on your preferred day (or why not come to both!). The deadline for registration is Friday 15th June so that we can arrange catering. The conference will also be live streamed from here. There is no special theme for the conference but we are using the University’s revised strategy to form the session groupings; Super Supportive (inclusive), Future Focused (visionary, innovative), Social Impact (impact, purposeful research). Andrew Scarborough, current chair of the Board of Governors will open the conference on the 20th and we have two key note speakers: Professor Gina Wisker on the 20th and UoN visiting professor Marc Bush on the 21st.

This friendly and relaxed conference is the perfect environment for UoN research students to practice their presentation skills. And we are running our second 3-Minute Thesis competition on the 21st, with a prize of £25 for the best presentation, awarded by John Griff from Northampton Radio.

Do come along and join us at this excellent research showcase.
