Robinson Crusoe, apps, smart cities and harvest mice!

PGR conference 2016On Tuesday 14th June diverse research topics took the stage at The University of Northampton Graduate School’s 2016 Postgraduate Researcher Conference. 18 postgraduate research students, in various stages of their research degree, each presented a 10 minute paper, with other student colleagues chairing or helping organise the event.

The conference is held annually to give the University’s cohort of doctoral students a chance to present to a friendly audience, practice communicating their research and engaging a general academic audience with their project. They also get a chance, in 5 minutes of questions, to discuss their research in a supportive environment with an audience of fellow students, academics and supervisors. The conference was opened by Andrew Scarborough, the Chair of the Board of Governors, and speakers were chosen from across the University’s six schools.
