Press Releases

The programme for the 2023 hybrid Researcher to Reader Conference has now been announced, and is given in full on the conference website.

The programme will include our usual mix of panel discussions, presentations with Q&A, workshops and debating. There will also be generous breaks for conversation, with optional lightning talks.

The digitisation of scientific content is a revolution that has yet to reach its full potential. In this opening keynote Rob Terry – TDR - World Health Organization will make the case for
open science and the need for systems thinking which may require a complete re-set for how science is undertaken in order to tackle the global challenges of climate change, food
security and future pandemics.
