Professor Sally Kendall, ARC KSS Research Capacity Lead, is pleased to announce the programme for this year's Research Week which reflects equality, diversity and inclusion in all its forms and how it is important for applied research, researchers across all professions and disciplines and engaging with the public.

The week includes a line-up of learning and development events, research insight talks and presentations aimed primarily at early career researchers, PhD students and independent researchers and has been designed to help bring people together across academia, health and social care. 

All events are free, with virtual events taking place 20-22 June and an in person all day symposium on 23 June at the University of Sussex. 

The programme includes a range of presenters from ARC themes, as well as some external presenters who will be sharing their work and expertise on topics such as inclusive research, visual communication and personal exploration/reflection.
