Technicians: Travel bursaries available for TALENT Commission Conference

25 September 2023

Eastern Arc has established a Technicians’ Network, led by technicians for the benefit of technicians. Part of its role is to enable technicians to connect and engage with others, both across Eastern Arc and beyond.

As such, EARC will be making a limited number of travel bursaries available for technicians at the three Eastern Arc universities to attend the TALENT Commission Conference in London on 16 November.

If you are a technician working at UEA, Essex or Kent, and would like to attend the conference, contact Phil Ward for further details. He will work with the EARC Technicians’ Network steering group to approve the bursaries. Numbers are limited, so do get in touch as soon as possible. Further details about the conference are available here, and the programme is given below.
