ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Partnership – ‘Poster Pitching’ session and prize

We would also like to invite you to enter our Poster Pitching session. This session will allow PhD students the opportunity to present the content of their poster in an engaging two minute ‘Pitch’. The presentation should be in an engaging lay manner that will encourage fellow conference attendees to view and discuss the research.

The ESRC Wales DTP is sponsoring a prize for best 'Poster Pitch' in the form of book tokens, up to the value of £200. This will be awarded during the conference.

We have a limited number of slots available for this session, so please register to participate in the Poster Pitching Competition before Thursday 30 May 2019, by sending an email with Poster Pitching in the subject box to
