PhD Student "Elevator Pitches"

18 UK and international PhD students were invited to participate in a poster competition, with their displayed research being a focal point of the conference breaks.  Based on these presentations, an innovative and highly popular feature of the conference was a 2-minute "elevator pitch" in plenary sessions to deliver insights of their work in an extremely high pressure environment.

We congratulate all the PhD participants for their efforts.  The chair of the wholeSEM advisory board - Jo Coleman, Strategy Director at the ETI - awarded prizes for the top 3 PhD Posters.  All 16 PhD Posters are available for download below:
