The key note speaker is Dr Tennie Videler from Vitae, the national organisation which champions the personal, professional and career development of doctoral researchers and research staff in higher education institutions and research institutes.

Professor Anthony Vickers of CSEE will open the event. There will also be contributions from Research Plus, an independent research agency, Dr Elizabeth Murchison from the Sanger Institute, Professor Rob Massara Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University, Dr Nick Constantinou of CCFEA, Professor Martin Henson, Dean of International Development and Jenny Young from the University’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership.
