This year, CENSIS announces its first Technology Summit research poster competition, giving postgraduate researchers the chance to practice their presentation skills, showcase their creativity, and communicate their research to an audience from a variety of subject backgrounds.

Over 60% of the 600+ delegates who attend the Tech Summit come from industry. In 2022, 36% held senior technical and management roles including CxO posts.

Enter the poster competition not only for the chance to win a generous prize, but to have the opportunity to network with these delegates and put your ideas to them.

  • Submit your idea for a chance to exhibit at the Tech Summit

    Postgraduate researchers (PGRs) undertaking research that is applicable to CENSIS’s aims and objectives are invited to apply. Entries are welcome from PGRs at any university in Scotland and in any year of study. Selected finalists will be invited to present a poster in person at the Summit.
