What previous attendees said

This has been a wonderful opportunity to meet people from all over the world and to learn more about the research in the UK. - Joachim Loo, Nanyang Technological University.

I’m inspired by the progress that the centre has made. As we have a similar initiative back in Australia, it has been great to see that we have so much in common and that we can learn both ways. - Bart Follink, Monash University.

I’ve really enjoyed networking with the next generation of scientists. It’s great to see the centre’s passion for the environment. - Catherine Alder, GSK.
