Festival of Early Stage Researchers Poster
The Festival of Early Stage Researchers (FESR) is our way to say thank you to the largest community of researchers in the UK. It is an annual conference, recognising and celebrating the invaluable contribution from UCL’s early-stage research community.

FESR 2021 ran from 21 - 29 January and was themed around developing your researcher identity, researcher wellbeing, career pathways, leadership, and research culture. Participants attended sessions ranging from 'Supervision skills for early-stage researchers' to 'Sweet dreams: tips for a more restful sleep'.

We will be back in 2022, so watch this space for more details.
