More students will be taking part this year than ever before. We can’t wait to hear from researchers of all different aspects of UK natural science

We want this conference to align with the goals and values that underpin our wider research. We are working on exciting ways to make this a part of our online conference, including running some workshops and activities themed around sustainability.

This year’s conference is focused on engaging communities with sustainability. We want to explore the close links between our research, and creating a sustainable and just future for all.
