Research events and conferences

Our research funding, partnerships and strategy teams attend and exhibit at a range of conferences, meetings and workshops throughout the year. We find this invaluable in meeting researchers and potential partner organisations to discuss opportunities to work with us. This is a new page, currently in the early stages of design and development, and is not a comprehensive list of events we organise or attend. If you have any feedback about the events or information you’d like to see here in the future, or would like to arrange a meeting with our staff, please get in touch.
