Fellows, grant awardees, colleagues, friends and guests are invited to attend the Academy's North East Region Celebration of Success. The event will celebrate both Fellows and grant awardees from across the North East, as exceptional individuals from a range of disciplines give insights into their life and research. In particular, we are delighted to welcome newly elected Fellows to reflect on their research and careers, and researchers supported by the Academy's Springboard scheme in their first independent posts.
The event will take place in Newcastle upon Tyne on Thursday 11 January 2018. With a view to promoting wider engagement and awareness of the Academy's work, Fellows attending this event are encouraged to bring along an early career colleague or post-doctoral researcher from their home institution as their guest. Following the talks and presentations there will be a drinks reception; those unable to attend the talks during the afternoon are still most welcome to join us for drinks.
The Celebration and drinks reception are free to attend. Booking is available using this page. Do please book as early as possible so that we can anticipate catering numbers and any dietary requirements.
