Man giving presentation

Festival of Doctoral Research 2022

Take part and present your research to a wider audience

Research Presentations

Would you like to share your unique research vision? This is an opportunity to give a 15 minute conference paper about your research live at the Festival of Doctoral Research, followed by a brief Questions and Answers panel. We have 10 slots available for PGRs in the programme and would love to hear from people across all faculties. Whether you are already an assured presenter, or would like to gain confidence and new skills, this is the chance to disseminate your work to a new audience.


Thursday 7 July 2022.
