Annual Research Day
'Academic Speed-Dating' is how our Executive Director, Dr Wagner, describes her preferred format for the Woolf Institute's Annual Research Day. More than twenty researchers and students associated with the Institute will present their work in eight-minute presentations. The aim is to give a short, accessible insight into the breadth of all our research in a single day.
There is the opportunity for informal discussions over lunch and dinner.
This is possibly our most popular annual event and you are encouraged to book as soon as possible.
