Coronavirus has caused significant changes to the way many of us are operating right now and MRS is no exception. One thing that hasn’t changed though is our commitment to keeping the research world galvanised and inspired by delivering an annual programme of one-day conferences.

In light of the ongoing guidance on lockdown and social distancing, we have decided to go virtual and take MRS Conferences online for the foreseeable future!

We know that virtual conferences lack some of the things that we all love about in-person events, but we are determined to keep delivering exciting, interactive, and engaging experiences. Attending an MRS virtual conference will still give you access to some of the best minds in research and business, as they share illuminating case-studies that trigger innovation, uncover new solutions to old problems and generate healthy debate.

The obvious advantage of taking things online is that you and other delegates can engage from the safety of your own location, but other benefits include the eliminated cost of travel and accommodationreduced carbon footprint and less logistical planning. It also opens the experience to a wider, global audience and means there are no limitations on the number of attendees. Finally, you will be able to download the day's content, after the event.
