Learning Objectives

The format of the event will be approximately 15 short (12 - 20 minute) presentations, with a brief time for questions between lectures.

More in depth discussion takes place one to one or in small groups, as people network together during the breaks.

This format is a great way to get a taster of many different projects or developments in your own or your teammates' fields, to hone in on the ones that interest you most, to learn from others, be inspired, and to apply what you've learnt to advance best practice in your own service.
