This event is part of a nationwide-project to gather views and encourage debate about how the different features of the UK research environment are affecting, both positively and negatively, the work and behaviour of scientists at all stages of their career. The findings of the project will be published and presented to policy makers towards the end of 2014. This is your chance to contribute. The event is open to anyone and is free to attend but please do make sure you register in advance, here.
There are also similar events taking place in universities throughout the UK during September, for more information please follow the link here.
