About the EASTBIO Symposia in general
Key feature of the EASTBIO Generic Skills Training, our Annual Symposium, held every summer in one of the four partner universities, is student-led and its topic alternates between research and impact.
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, 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.
The 2017 Symposium was held in Aberdeen (Hillhead Student Village & King's College Conference Centre), on Sunday the 11th and Monday the 12th of June 2017. Further information can be found here.
