Macro Group YRM 2017


The Macro Group UK Young Researchers Meeting gives PhD students and post-doctoral fellows the chance to present their work in oral and poster sessions, be inspired by plenary speakers from academia and industry, and network with their peers from across the UK. With support from our sponsors, we are hosting the 2017 YRM at the University of Edinburgh (19th-20th June) and encourage all polymer science groups across the UK and European countries to attend and showcase their work!

There are lots of good options for accommodation near the conference venue. Two suggestions include:
Cameron Toll Travelodge. Approx. £42 pppn. 10 min walk to campus.
The Northumberland Hotel. Approx. £35 pppn. 10 min walk to campus.

There are also lots of excellent accommodation closer to the city centre for those who want to experience more of the city. Excellent bus links connect to the city, with trip planning facilitated by the Lothian Buses app.

We are super duper thankful for the support of our sponsors – with contributions at the Gold, Silver and Bronze levels. This helps keep registration costs low, and will provide prizes for best talks and posters. Thanks!
