Vitae International Researcher Development Conference 2023

We are very excited to announce that bookings are now open 


We look forward to welcoming you to Vitae’s annual conference (#VitaeCon2023) for all those with an interest in the policy and practice of global researcher development. 

Following the appetite for in-person meetings expressed at last year’s face-to face event, but also the steadfast popularity of the accessible, online element, we will again be offering conference attendance across both formats, with increased capacity and an expanded programme for the face-to-face element, that will take place at the Science and Industry Museum Manchester, UK


Online Wednesday 6 September and Thursday 7 September 2023.

In person Monday 25 September and Tuesday 26 September 2023.

Evening dinner reception Monday 25 September 2023
