Vitae International Researcher Developer Conference 2022

Final preparations are being made for the Vitae International Researcher Development Conference (#VitaeCon2022) next week (online 13-15 September), when we will welcome participants from around the world to discuss policy and share practice around researcher development. 

If you have not already booked your place, there is current availability on some ticket types, though we advise that you book your place as soon as possible.

Those already booked for #VitaeCon2022 should have received a welcome email containing joining information for next week. It is worth taking a browse through the links in advance to familiarise yourself with the programme and conference platform.  

Remember that you can click the ‘save your seat’ button on the conference agenda to reserve a place for the sessions that you especially want to attend - look for the 'armchair' symbol. 

Networking will take place primarily in Kumospace (available during the #VitaeCon2022 opening hours) and this is where the Vitae help desk will be and where you will be able to meet exhibitors. The link to Kumospace will be sent to #VitaeCon2022 participants on Monday, and we encourage you to register for a free account in advance of the conference.
