2019 Summer Meeting, Manchester

14th July 2019 – 17th July 2019

Buddy Scheme

The BAP summer conference is a large very busy event which can seem quite daunting for newer Training and Early Career Members. As part of our on-going endeavours to increase support for our Training and Early Career Members, the BAP will be offering a Conference Buddy scheme at the 2019 Summer Meeting. This scheme aims to match Training and Early Career Members with experienced BAP members with similar research interests. There will be an informal Meet-and-Greet session at 18:30 on Sunday 14 July, just prior to the Welcome Reception at the Sackville Building. The senior Buddies will aim to provide a general overview of the conference, discuss the best events for the trainee/early career researcher to attend, and may help them to identify appropriate people to network with during the conference.

We hope that the Buddy scheme will allow informal mentoring relationships to further develop after the end of conference.
