2021 Summer Meeting, Manchester

18th July 2021 – 21st July 2021

Buddy Scheme

The BAP summer conference is a large and very busy event which can seem quite daunting for newer Training Members. As part of our on-going endeavours to increase support for our Training Members, the BAP will be offering a Conference Buddy scheme at the 2021 Summer Meeting. This scheme aims to match Training Members with experienced BAP members with similar research interests. There will be an informal Meet-and-Greet session at 18:15 on Sunday 18 July, just prior to the Welcome Reception (food included) at the Sackville Building. The senior Buddies will aim to provide a general overview of the conference, discuss the best events for the trainee 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.
