Do you have a great project that you would like to share with delegates? Are you hungry to open a conversation about collaboration around specific purposes? Are you keen to explore the ethics of collaboration, and how these can be negotiated? Are you wanting to consider how universities might collaborate in the future? Whether you work in or with universities we are keen to hear from you.
Our poster party is a key way to network, and be inspired by some of the excellent work happening across the world. Poster hosts provide a poster about their work, and can also bring interactive elements should they so wish. There is a 2 hour session at Engage where, over drinks and nibbles, delegates can meet the poster hosts, and learn from their work.
To find out more and to apply by 30th July, please see the NCCPE website. Bookings for the conference will open in September.
