Of the conference, Professor Elizabeth Peel, Associate Pro-Vice Chancellor of the Doctoral College commented: “Loughborough’s Annual Research Conference provides a great opportunity for our researchers to showcase their work and network with each other in a supportive and encouraging space.

“The theme this year is ‘The Agile Researcher’, through which we will explore throughout the day how researchers can be flexible and seek out opportunities to enhance their research and their future career.”
