Open to all PhD students and Postdocs whose research is related, but not exclusive, to conservation and environmental issues or have a strong interest in this field and would like to meet researchers who work in this area, with a possibility of collaborating in the future. 

The Programme has been set up to encourage graduates and postocs to collaborate from a wide range of disciplines through shared skills workshops, seminars, talks and other activities. There are two main elements to each session which are a shared activity such as a seminar or workshop, and an opportunity to network with each other as well as the speakers afterwards over a lunch. 

All events will take place in the David Attenborough Building, the new conservation campus on the New Museum Site in Cambridge.
