IST Hosts Technical Conference

The Institute of Science & Technology (IST) Conference is happening on 14 September!

Following on from the hugely successful 2016 IST Technical Conference in Manchester, the IST is holding a one day Technical Conference in the Mercure Grand Hotel, Leicester on 14 September.

The conference includes two keynote speakers and 15 workshops covering a wide range of topics:

Keynote 1: Professor Anu Ojha OBE, Director of the National Space Centre

Keynote 2: Dr Turi King, Reader in Genetics and Archaeology at the University of Leicester will be discussing her work leading ‘The King’s DNA analysis in the Richard III identification project.

IST President, Dr Helen Sharman OBE FRSC (first UK astronaut) will be attending all day and will be running a workshop.

IST will be offering a number of prizes/awards and offers the opportunity to contribute to the conference through its poster competition.

The Conference has been specifically organised for technicians, technologists, technical supervisors, laboratory/service managers and technical managers. Register early to avoid disappointment – last year's conference closed early due to huge demand!
