The PEARL team are delighted to invite staff, students and guests to the 3rd annual PEARL Conference (and the first ever ONLINE PEARL Conference!). Join us in a celebration and showcase of the wonderful variety of engaged research activities taking place at Lincoln. It’s a great opportunity to get a flavour of the work being carried out by our talented UoL staff and students, make new connections and find some inspiration. 

This conference will be held via the digital conferencing app, Zoom. You do not need to download any additional software to take part but downloading the Zoom desktop app may make your viewing experience a little easier. If you wish to take part in the interactive discussion elements of the conference, you will need access to a microphone and ideally, a webcam.

Although this is an online event, registration is still necessary to ensure we can appropriately prepare the capacity of our online platform. Additionally, for security reasons we can only send out joining instructions to registered attendees.  Please Register here for the PEARL 2020 Conference.
