A showcase of the research being undertaken by our University Research Fellows and an opportunity for discussion and collaboration.
The URF Research Conference aims to bring together all University Research Fellows as a cohort to discuss their work and provide opportunities for discussion, collaboration and networking.
All speakers at the conference were chosen by a focus group of URFs which were drawn from a cross section of universities and subject areas.
The conference will consist of two plenary sessions followed by breakout sessions. The day will end with a drinks reception and poster exhibition. Dinner will also be provided from 6.30pm for those who wish to join us.
