Bursary competition

The Annual bioProcessUK Conference runs a popular Bursary Poster Competition, this year sponsored by Pall Corporation, where approximately 25-30 high calibre postgraduate students and post doctoral researchers have an opportunity to display a poster showcasing their research in biological medicines and bioprocessing. 

A popular feature of the conference is the early career “poster flash” session where selected bursary winners will take to the virtual stage with a short oral presentation.

The competition also provides students with a chance to build their network by engaging with industry professionals. 

Presenting a poster is beneficial to career and professional development of young researchers. 


Benefits of participating in the poster prize competition include:

  • Make connections – build networks and share information and research with academia and companies across the UK
  • Enhance professional development
  • Present research achievements to a wide audience
  • Advertise work to potential employers
  • Show-off creative ability and discuss ideas –  inspiration for new projects comes out of questions asked, and opportunities for new collaborations are often found.

The deadline for applications is Friday 7 October 2022.  Please email your entry to Sam Care at [email protected]. Judging will be done by conference delegates and the overall winner will be awarded a prize (an iPad or similar electronic device).
