The Importance of Technical Posters
March 4, 2020
Posters have been an important factor of the annual bioProcessUK conference for the past few years. These sessions provide the opportunity for early career researchers to showcase their research, as well as themselves, in front of an audience including senior leaders across academic and industrial sectors of the UK bioprocessing community. A poster flash session is held early on during the conference, which maximises the visibility of these early career researchers. I have been delighted to chair this over recent years. This is a challenging, but valuable opportunity for the researchers to come onto the podium and give a short (2 minute) elevator-style pitch of their poster to the audience using just 2-3 slides.
Although it may appear daunting, feedback I have received during all conferences is that this is a very rewarding experience for both the presenters and audiences. The poster flash session is followed by a series of networking sessions. This enables the poster presenters to interact with the conference delegates and to review their posters in more detail.
Talent development and retention is a key performance indicator within the UK bioprocessing sector. Pall Biotech support a prize at the bioProcessUK conferences for the best poster. All conference delegates can vote on this prize and the winner is announced during the closing session of the meeting.
