25 April 2023

Registration is now open for the EARC Technicians’ Network Symposium, taking place on 7 July at the University of Essex. The event is open to all technical staff from the universities of Essex, East Anglia and Kent.

The Network aims to build and create a supportive cross-institutional community by technicians for technicians.The symposium is the launch event for the Network. Funded by the Gatsby Foundation and the University of Essex, it will bring together technical staff from across the three universities.

It is an opportunity to share best practice, create continued professional development and knowledge exchange opportunities, and develop strong and robust avenues of communication across the universities to ensure that all technicians have the opportunity to be involved in the network.


The event is free and open to all technical staff at the three universities, and travel will be provided. However, places are limited, and will be given on a first come, first served basis. To register, click here.

If there are spare places, these will be made available to those beyond Eastern Arc closer to the event.
