WRE with President Jane Clarke

Wolfson Research Event 2021

Dates: 28-30 April, 2021 

The Wolfson Research event is an interdisciplinary conference, where students of Wolfson College present their research. 

The Event celebrates the knowledge developed at Wolfson College and its researchers – junior and experienced – who come together to exchange ideas and experiences for a day. WRE invites Wolfson students to present their research and receive constructive feedback from the Wolfson academic community and from guests coming from other departments at the University of Cambridge.

If COVID-19 guidelines allow it, this year the event will take place in a hybrid format: presentations will take place at the venue, but the audience will join online. 

The event is open to everyone. The registration for the event will open closer to the date.

Any questions on submissions should be directed to the organisers' committee.
