The University Graduate School's annual Research Poster Conference has been a major event at the University of Birmingham since 2007. The conference showcases some of the best new postgraduate researchers, giving them a platform to engage a wider audience with the unique research that happens right here in the University. This is an opportunity to meet some of the minds responsible for pushing back the limits of human knowledge and hear their first-hand account of their work. Attendance is free, you need only register a place in advance and free refreshments and nibbles will also be provided. The poster conference is an opportunity for staff and students from around the University to become more aware about the diversity of research that happens in Birmingham, and also an opportunity for members of the local community, including schools, community groups and businesses to come onto campus and talk to Birmingham researchers.
