Workshops & panel discussions

Gather information on funding possibilities from our scientific partners. Improve your transferable skills, work in a group, interact! Try out something new - consulting, communicating science for the media? This year you will be able to enrol in one of our (at least!) three unique workshops. We are also planning two panel discussions. Join in! Share your opinion about topics including Polish science, technology transfer, innovative research and perspectives of career development in Poland and abroad. 


Entertainment

How about a standup comedy night or an overly geeky pub quiz night on Friday, and the legendary SPP party on Saturday? Also, this year at the Balliol College we will be hosting the biggest SPP dinner so far.  Have fun and make new friends - sometimes the best (scientific) ideas come up over a cup of coffee or a glass of wine! 




If you have any questions regarding the event or registration process, email us at sppoxford@poloniumfoundation.org

See you in Oxford!
