Marine Biological Association’s 16th Annual Postgraduate Conference

May 5 - May 8

The Marine Biological Association’s 16th Annual Postgraduate Conference is taking place in May 2019 at Newcastle University.

The 16th Annual MBA Postgraduate Conference 2019 aims to bring together postgraduate students, newly graduated students, research assistants and post-doctoral research fellows to promote their research, whilst providing an opportunity to meet with senior academics and leaders in marine and maritime industries. With a touch of the famous northern hospitality at Newcastle University, we aim to create a diverse, inclusive and thought-provoking environment for budding marine scientists, to stimulate discussion about cutting edge research and generate ideas that may lead to future collaborations. By liaising with local businesses and industry leaders in the marine sector, we hope to encourage those who attend to think about future connections between industry science partners.

At this conference we are committed to sustainability, therefore we are going paperless! Daily schedules are available to be downloaded below and keep up to date with all conference details on our social media pages. Our merchandise is eco-friendly and only reusable alternatives to single use plastics will be available. Wherever possible, we’ll be donating leftover food to local food banks.
