We are excited to announce that the 2017 CENTA conference will be held on 15th September at Loughborough University. The conference will showcase the world leading research undertaken by CENTA PhD students.

Registration is open to students, staff and the public and attendance is encouraged from those not affiliated with CENTA. The conference is a good opportunity for the incoming CENTA cohort to meet their colleagues. CENTA student supervisors are also encouraged to attend, in order to support their students and learn more about the research undertaken by CENTA.



The one-day conference will involve short presentations by CENTA students, a keynote address, poster sessions and short workshops. Lunch and refreshments will be provided. A networking social will follow the conference. A full program will be provided as details are finalised.
