The eleventh annual EASTBIO Symposium will be held in Edinburgh (John McIntyre Conference Centre) on 12-13 of June 2023. The programme will have an industrial focus and we will start planning our events in close collaboration with our Advisory and Industrial groups soon.
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, student presentations, and interactive workshops to develop and consolidate student transferable and public engagement skills.
