Why does the BDC hold Researcher Inaugurations?
We think Bristol is a special place to do a research degree. It’s not just the culture of innovation, outstanding facilities and unique opportunities that will help you achieve your research ambitions — it’s also our rich and vibrant research community.
The Researcher Inauguration is a chance to meet other members of this multidisciplinary community, make connections and receive an official welcome from the University.
