The sixth annual symposium, on Societal Impact of Research, will be held at the University of Aberdeen (King's College Conference Centre) on the 11 and 12 June 2017. The Symposium is a marvellous opportunity for all the EASTBIO cohorts of students and supervisors to meet and interact on a single day of talks and activities, followed with a formal dinner and a Ceilidh dance.
We offer students accommodation on the night of the 11 June so as to facilitate cohort-building and consolidate relationships formed during our training activities throughout the year. We encourage and celebrate our supervisors in their attendance and engagement with the programme prior to and during the Symposium - please note that supervisors are not expected to attend on Sunday the 11 June but are more than welcome to if they so wish.
This year's event will be focussed on the Societal Impact of Research and will offer EASTBIO students and supervisors the opportunity to interact with one another and invited guests and to engage with the topic via discussion and purpose-built workshops.
Keynote speaker (Sunday 11 June, 4 pm) Dr Lisa Boden (Veterinary Public Health; EPIC- Centre of Expertise on Animal Disease Outbreaks; University of Glasgow)
The programme will be finalised by our second- and first-year student reps with the support of the host university and the EASTBIO team.
Registration open: sign up here to confirm your attendance no later than the 1st March 2017.
More information about the schedule and programme of activities will be published here shortly.
