  • Showcase your research with presentations, poster presentations and training sessions
  • Learn about, and engage with, the university’s Research Clusters
  • Receive updates on the latest research developments nationally and globally
  • Hear presentations from external speakers
  • Attend information and training workshops and sessions
  • Learn about research related systems, policies and processes
  • Discover tools to help your research and research practices
  • Attend the conference dinner (pre-registration essential)

Research posters

An important aspect of the conference is the chance for staff and students (individually or together) to present something about the research they have been undertaking. Throughout the conference there will be a display of research posters in the conference public area, including the opportunity to vote for the best poster with prizes awarded on the final day.


Information tables 

During the conference there will be an array of information points set out; these will be staffed by members of the appropriate teams to ensure access to experts in various research support functions on-hand.  These tables will be confirmed closer to the conference.
