CLCR PGR Conference 2020

The 2020 CLCR Conference is taking a new format due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We understand that, even though times are difficult, it is important for researchers to be able to talk about their research and get some feedback. So, this year CLCR Postgraduate Researchers have made posters about some aspect of their research. They also added two questions they have had or challenges they have faced in order to interact with the conference participants. From 15th to 17th June, all CLCR students and staff are welcome to come, read the posters, and, most importantly, leave their comments.

See you then!
