Fellowship Holders Symposium - 29th January & 19th February 2021

To highlight the achievements of our Fellowship holders, the College of Science and Engineering is running a Fellowship Holders Symposium again this year. To broaden the number of presentations we have, two short sessions will be held on the 29th of January and 19th of February. Each of our speakers will offer a short, 5 minute introduction to their Fellowship and any initial research. This time we will also have a two more established Fellows who will showcase their research and also what the Fellowship has allowed them to achieve. It’s a great chance to see some interesting research and also gain an understanding of what can be achieved with a Fellowship, with our speakers coming from across the College.

Both events will start at 2pm, registration links are as below, and please see the associated programmes for speakers and an overview of their talks:
