Peer review drop-in session for Conference Committee and other activities


The work of the committee is coordinated by the Co-Chairs and we meet together online to review progress and make plans. We have now added new information about upcoming committee activities.

If you are part of the committee, we invite you to take part in the first virtual meeting later this month:

  • NEXT: Meeting 2: Partnerships, community outreach and sponsorship

    This time we’ll be discussing reaching out across sectors to build partnerships, find strategic sponsors and involve the community in Manchester and beyond in the event.
    EXTRA: Drop-in session for peer-review support
    Following the meeting (from 1pm BST) we will be running a support session for peer-review. Everyone welcome.
