Description

Welcome to the first Environmental Biosciences & Conservation Careers Conference, held at UCL, London.

This conference will provide an opportunity to postgraduate students from all London universities with a passion in environmental sciences to present their scientific research as a poster and/or a talk. There is no fee for presenting, and the event is free to attend.

This event will provide you with invaluable experience that will benefit you after you graduate, whether you choose to pursue a career in academia or industry. This event will provide an opportunity to network with the next generation of environmental scientists, and will give you the opportunity to demonstrate your own research to not only your cohort, but also to potential employers in a variety of sectors.

There will also be guest speakers attending who will speak on a variety of topics, including past masters students sharing their career experience and achievements. The full list of speakers will be made public before the conference.
