Event description

Description

The morning Resarch Staff/Postdocs Conference is around the theme of Celebrating Success and is a new, exciting event which aims to help postdocs, early career researchers and Principal Investigators to understand how the research funders support the career development of researchers.

Find out about the career destinations of other researchers, ask the funders personally how they can help your career and challenge your own motivations and drive to become a better researcher.

Falling Walls Lab: York

Falling Walls Lab is a fast-paced event - a little bit TEDtalk and a little bit Dragon's Den, designed to showcase the quality, talent and passion of up-and-coming researchers, innovators and entrepreneurs.

Our researchers will have just three minutes to articulate how their work contributes to the fall of intellectual, societal and scientific walls.

The overall winner will have the chance to deliver their talk at the Falling Walls Lab Finale in Berlin in November.

14:00-16:00 Falling Walls Lab: YORK

16:00-16:30 Winners announced, prizes awarded and close.
