The EBNet Early Career Researcher Conference – 30 Aug-1 Sept 2023, Edinburgh

Registration is now open: HERE

Are you an ECR working in Environmental Biotechnology? Join us in 2023 for our 5th annual ECR conference (ECR23).

Last year we attracted 70 people to Nottingham with an array of interesting talks, a free career-focused workshop and prizes for the best contributors. This year the entirely FREE* conference will feature a top invited international speaker and include a drinks reception, dinner, accommodation/travel and two full days of fascinating presentations from ECRs working in the latest hot topics from across the country. Contextualise your research, meet useful people and practice your communication skills with us. We cover all aspects of EB so you can be sure to see something new from our cross-disciplinary community of researchers and practitioners. No results to share yet? Our poster session is ideal for new PhD students to showcase their proposed research. Join us (30 August-1 September) and look forward to network with peers from across the UK in 2023.

Do you have new colleagues who need to network? We love to meet more people working in EB. Share the details and help us promote with this Flyer.
