The University Research Conference was a biennial event and we had hoped to hold the event in Autumn 2021. However, due to the the ongoing uncertainties surrounding meetings we have had to postpone our next event until 2022.

The next staff and student research conference will be hosted online from 1.30 p.m. on Thurs 13 January to 1 p.m. on Fri 14 January 2022. 

To register please contact Fiona Leiper.

Information on the previous conferences in 2018 and 2016 will remain available within this section for reference.
