Rising Stars seminar series

This seminar series is a chance to hear from early career researchers across the UK and beyond, working in the field of learning and neurodevelopmental diversity.  

This seminar series is a chance to hear from early career researchers across the UK and beyond, working in the field of learning and neurodevelopmental diversity. We're particularly interested in hearing from researchers whose work has practical implications for children, families, educators, or clinicians.

Speakers in the early stages of their research career present a two-part seminar to a small audience from the Salvesen Mindroom Research Centre and our affiliated groups at the University of Edinburgh.

Speakers' presentations are in two parts. Part one is on new findings from their work and part two is on something that is not normally shared in traditional research outputs (conference presentations, posters, and journals). 

This year's theme is Open science and reproducibility.

If you’re interested in hearing more about the seminar series, or would like to be a Rising Stars speaker, please contact Rachael Davis.
