Facilities and Technician Showcase

22nd May 2019, Physics Concourse and PLT

We will be showcasing the wide variety of facilities available at Warwick and the fantastic work our technical staff do through a series of short talks and a networking poster session.

Coffee and cake will be provided in the network session, so please register to attend here to help with catering!

The showcase is aimed at any researchers (Masters to PI) that wish to find out the latest developments in technology and what our technical staff are working on, technical staff who wish to see what happens in other departments and anyone who is interested more generally in the sciences at Warwick.
