Annual PGR Conference

Our students design and run their own national postgraduate conference

Each year, a committee of current students is invited to design and deliver a major national postgraduate research conference.

11th Annual PGR Conference

We are delighted to be hosting the 11th Annual Postgraduate Research Conference which will take place on the 6 March 2019 at Manchester Met.

Risks and Beyond!

The theme of the conference is Risks and Beyond!. We welcome multidisciplinary abstracts on research risks, uncertainties, how we overcome them and the future implications to society.

Risk is inherent in all aspects of life, from making everyday decisions to hypothesising new ideas for the benefit of the wider community. These risks assess the limits of humanity’s knowledge, challenge creative thinking and push boundaries beyond our wildest imagination.

Manchester Metropolitan University is welcoming multidisciplinary works that discuss these research risks, uncertainties, how we overcome them and the future work sprouting from the risks taken. We welcome responses in the following areas:
