What it's all about


We'll be using Zoom - and the attendance will be strictly limited. That means we won't be in one giant conference call, but a slightly smaller group where we can actually communicate.


The event will have its own exclusive Scientistt Group, so you can continue your connections with ease into the future. This will provide you with a platform for collaboration and discussion.


It goes without saying that using technology to stay in contact is a way to help support one another. Virtual Networking is not about testing your academic level or requiring specialist knowledge - we are totally inclusive.
