Cumberland Lodge, which is an educational charity, is organising a residential conference to give postgraduates and post docs from all disciplines an opportunity to exchange ideas, practices, experiences and aspirations. All participants will be expected to give a 10 minute presentation on their research pitched at non-specialists.

This conference offers postgraduate students and post docs the opportunity to explain to peers from other disciplines why their research matters, while also hearing from leading figures in academia and outside explain how research has changed their lives.

98% of attendees at previous conferences were either satisfied or very satisfied and 98% would recommend the event.
