'Perspectives' poster session

"I just don’t understand what you do!"

Tired of explaining your research, only to get this reply?

Scientists are increasingly being asked to communicate the social and ethical aspects of their research. However, there are few opportunities for early-career researchers to develop their skills in discussing these issues.

perspectives , a poster session with a difference, gives you valuable experience in discussing your research with a non-specialist audience. The scheme also provides training in producing and presenting a poster. Finalists will present their posters at the BA Festival of Science in Liverpool, where prizes will be awarded by a panel of expert judges.
