The delegate list will consist of researchers from across the globe providing an incredible networking opportunity with people working in internationally highly regarded universities within your field. It is also an excellent skills development opportunity in:

You will also be provided with a jointly awarded Certificate of Attendance by Universitas 21 and University of Birmingham.
