Research events and conferences

As well as hosting our own events and conferences, our research funding, strategy and partnerships 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. 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 at these events, please do get in touch.
