We are excited to announce the call for abstracts for the TWENTY65 Conference 2020 is now open.

Alongside the conference presentations, workshops and seminars, there will again be a poster display area for early stage career researchers, an exhibition space dedicated to early stage technologies (TRL 4-7) together with exhibition space for more established businesses. Taking feedback from last year’s conference, we have allocated time in the programme for exploring the exhibition stands, posters and networking which does not conflict with any other presentations or activities. It’s set to be an exciting, interesting mix of cutting edge theory, practice and solutions!
