Event Details

This friendly and relaxed conference will be hosted at the University of Nottingham and is a great opportunity to promote your research, and meet and network with other postgraduate research students from around the East Midlands. The conference aims to encourage interdisciplinary dialogue among postgraduate students from a range of disciplines.

The theme for the 2017 conference is “Global Perspectives” – how your research impacts global challenges or inspires a better future. This could be by developing a potential solution to a specific problem, discovering a new way of working, opening up a new way of thinking about a subject, or inspiring others to make a change in the world.

During the conference, selected research postgraduates will give 10 minute presentations or a poster presentation, relevant to one or more of these areas:

•             Culture and communications

•             Society, health and wellbeing

•             Sustaining our futures

•             Business politics, social responsibility and justice

•             Science, engineering & technology

•             Learning and development

The conference also hosts a three minute thesis (3MT) competition – where researchers explain the complexity and relevance of their research, in three minutes.
