Programme

The programme focuses on promoting interaction and in addition to professional forums, provides a space for exchange and discussion of interdisciplinary topics. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss flash talks on academic issues together with internationally recognised experts and other participants or can present their work in the form of a poster. Participants’ contribution to the networking event is a significant aspect of the concept, further enhanced by an interactive conference app and open space sessions.
