Following the success of our first ever in person event in 2023, the South West Pharmacy Research Network will be holding our second annual Innovation Day in 2024. We are arranging an exciting programme to:

  • enable delegates from different organisations to get to know each other and how they might collaborate on future projects
  • inspire delegates to get more involved in research
  • increase delegates’ research knowledge and skills

Please read the information below to find out more and come back in the future when more details and a registration form will be available.


The organising committee are currently working to prepare the programme - come back to see more details in May 2024.

Posters and prizes

We encourage everyone attending the event to share one or more posters. We will also put them on our website after the conference (unless you ask us not to do this). Posters can be on anything related to research, audit, service evaluation or quality improvement - there are no specific requirements.

Please do consider submitting a poster, whether you have final results to share, early results for a project that's underway, an idea for a new project or a request for collaborators. Not only will this enhance your CV, it will also improve the networking and interactivity of the day. Further details of how to submit a poster will be provided in June 2024, but in the meantime you can begin thinking about what you might submit.


There will also be four poster prizes, which will be awarded at the end of the day:

  • best poster from an early career researcher (lead author does not have a PhD)
  • best poster from a more experienced researcher (lead author has a PhD)
  • most visually attractive poster
  • delegates' choice

Help and advice

This 21 minute YouTube video gives excellent, evidence-based advice on how to design a poster that will attract attention and communicate your key messages – the results are different to most posters you may have seen before.

This event will be held on the top floor of the Rolle Building at the University of Plymouth.
