Postgraduate Student Conference

Loughborough University, 17th December 2015

Call for Abstracts Open
The call for abstract submissions for the Midlands Energy Consortium (MEC) Student Conference, to be held at Loughborough University on 17th December 2015, is now open.

We are calling for PhD and Masters Students to send a half page abstract detailing their research and giving a summary of any results that they would like to present at the conference to by Monday 14th December 2015.

The topics can be from a broad number of areas but candidates’ research must be focussed on (or have applications to) energy.
Please state in your abstract submission whether you wish to present your research via either an oral or poster presentation. There will be prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd in both the oral and poster presentation categories.

The conference is an opportunity to present your research and develop your engagement, influence and impact skillset. The day will include key insights and opinions on the energy landscape from Professor Jim Skea, a leading energy research expert.
