Taking place on Tuesday 19 September 2023, the National Postdoc Conference 2023 with the theme “Transitions and New Horizons”, will be a platform to celebrate the impact and contribution of postdocs in changing the world for the better. It will be a chance to convene the postdoctoral community for building networks, sharing experiences, developing careers, and equipping postdocs to thrive in their current role and beyond.
This one-day conference will bring postdoctoral researchers, research development managers, academics, and support staff together in face-to-face plenary sessions, workshops, exhibition, and networking. An online element is also offered for those unable to attend in person. The conference will offer opportunities for sponsors to engage with the delegates during breaks in a large dedicated exhibition area. We plan for up to 300 delegates attending at Loughborough University, with more joining online.
Why Sponsor the Conference?
By sponsoring NPDC, you can give something back to the postdoctoral community who deliver so much, and yet often receive little reward and recognition. Attending NPDC23 in person as a sponsor will be an opportunity to meet and engage with the UKs postdoctoral community. In sponsoring the event you will raise your profile with delegates, who are our future academics, researchers and employees. This is a not-for-profit event and all the sponsorship we receive will be invested back into the conference directly, enabling us to support activities, awards, grants and more for participants.
