21st Annual RAPS Meeting

Date: September 2, 2021 - September 3, 2021

21st annual RAPS meeting 2021 with Dr Kerry Elgie attending

The 21st Annual RAPS Meeting is taking place online on the 2nd and 3rd September 2021.

The annual RAPS (Recent Appointees in Polymer Science) meeting aims to bring together career academics in the early stages of their career (within approximately 5 years of appointment), PDRAs and industrialists.

The virtual meeting is intended to offer opportunities for those wishing to present their work, to enable attendees to develop new networks, and to provide practical, early career advice from a range of experienced speakers on subjects from generating funding, mitigating the career-related effects of the coronavirus pandemic, becoming independent, interacting with the media or building a lab.

If you’d like to keep up with up-to-date announcements from the organisers, they have a LinkedIn group and a Twitter account you may wish to follow.
