Five posters from our online mini-conference focusing on the work of early career researchers (ECRs) are now available to download from our website, along with two abstracts from researchers whose work we cannot publish at this point.

The mini-conference, entitled ‘Science for Rural Recovery and Resilience’, took place online on November 11, 2020. A short report on the event is available in our News section.

The PDFs are listed below, and will also be available from the event page.
