Bioenergy Symposium Flyer

Symposium Agenda

In March 2013 myself and a fellow PhD student organised a symposium for early career researchers within the field of bioenergy. To the left is the flyer for this event which briefly explains the topics covered, and to the right the agenda. Presentations were given over the two days and consisted of both PhD students and guest speakers to stimulate a discussion around a career in bioenergy. Further, a networking dinner was organised for the first night and was attended by a few others from the bioenergy industry. My own presentation can be found on this site through this link and the booklet I made for the event can be found here, including the abstracts of all those that presented. A list of these presenters and their titles is below.
