Register for this event

Prices start from £5.00

Synopsis

After the success of the inaugural Agri-Food careers forum in 2018, we have decided to run a second event.

The event will include talks from leaders in industry, academia, and science policy/communication, who currently work in or have a background in Agri-Food. Each talk will be followed by time for questions from attendees. Talks will cover aspects of speakers' careers, and offer advice on career development.

The event offers fantastic opportunities for networking with both academics and industry professionals working in the Agri-Food sector. A variety of networking activities will take place throughout the day, and the day will culminate in a networking reception.


Attendees

This event is planned for students and early career scientists working in the agricultural and food science fields.
