ECR Conference 2019 Highlights

23rd April 2019

The biennial conference for students and now early career members was held on 16th and 17th April 2019 at the University of Sheffield United Kingdom.

Over 75 delegates spent the two days at the conference sharing their research either in oral or poster presentations. They also had the chance to network with each other and participate in two workshops covering career opportunities and tips on how to prepare for your Viva.

The conference was also visited by our Patron HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG GCVO who listened to presentations from Jessica Potts "Acetamipirid transport and mobility within UK agricultural soils - A comparison of commercial mixtures under different soil organic matter treatments"

and Christopher McCloskey "Separating plant and soil carbon fluxes under field conditions"

The Duke also viewed posters by Emily Guest, Thomas Fungenzi, Maud van Soest, Paul George, Emily Dowdeswell-Downey and Roisin O'Riordan

The Duke also addressed the delegates and signed a letter for the ECR Time Caspsule which will be buried on World Soil Day 2019 and retrieved on the society's 100th anniversary in 2047
