The CREST SUMMER SCHOOL will be a great opportunity for researchers to:

  • Focus on your own professional development as a researcher in the collegial company of your peers from across a wide range of Universities and specialist Colleges;
  • Meet and engage with experts representing some of the UKs most renowned national research resources;
  • Get an insight into some key areas of development and their policy context to equip you on your researcher career journey;
  • Leave with a spring in your step and the motivation to explore specific areas of development in more detail with research supervisors and colleagues, through CREST and through engagement with partners operating in the broader knowledge economy.
