Meet our new Fellows

5 July - 6 July 2021

Hosted by the Academy Registrar Professor Philippa Saunders, two online events will include talks from some of the new Fellows elected this year and in 2020. Research presentations will be followed by an opportunity to network informally to meet our new colleagues as well as to catch-up with old friends. We hope Fellows will take this opportunity to join us to hear from and meet some of our newest Fellows - stay for as much or little as you like. 

Meetings will take place via Zoom. Information on dates and times is given below. Fellows are welcome to join both sessions.

Attendance at these events is limited to Academy Fellows only. Selected talks will be available to the public on the Academy's YouTube channel afterwards.
