The ninth annual EASTBIO Symposium on the Societal Impact of Bioscience research will be held on the 17-18 of June 2021 (half days). The schedule will be based on the advance planning carried out for the deferred 2020 EASTBIO symposium by our student reps and host academic lead, the University of St Andrews.

Further details and updates will be published here.

Key feature of the EASTBIO Generic Skills Training, the EASTBIO Symposium, held every summer in one of the four partner universities, is student-led and its focus alternates between research and research impact, on society, policy and industry.

The EASTBIO Symposia provide a great opportunity for students to meet fellow students, supervisors, the members of our Management Group and Advisory team and invited speakers, discuss their research and develop additional transferable skills. The programme, developed with the help of student representatives from the second and first year of their PhD studies, combines talks given by guest speakers within the four key research themes with workshops and students' presentations to develop and consolidate transferable and public engagement skills.
