The event is organised by the ESRC DTP in collaboration with the AHRC DTP and they have decided to open up the event to the wider PGR community as they have a few places left.
Please see details attached for the joint North West ESRC / AHRC Doctoral Training Partnerships Impact Event.
As well as providing context regarding how impact can benefit your PGR projects and subsequent careers, the day offers an opportunity to discuss the potential impact of your specific research with fellow PGRs and expert Impact Officers from across the consortia.
This will be held between 10.30 and 16.00 on the 21st May 2019 at The Quaker Meeting House, 22 School Lane, Liverpool. Please see below for full details.
