BCUR2020 Postponed due to COVID-19

Posted on: July 29, 2020 by: Beccy Shaw

After careful monitoring of the ongoing COVID 19 situation in the UK and around the world The Executive Committee of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research has decided to postpone this years conference. The University of Leeds will now host the conference on the 12 – 13 April 2021.

This has been a difficult decision to make but we are expecting over 600 attendees for our upcoming conference and therefore it is vital that we take appropriate steps to prioritise your health and safety and ensure BCUR is a safe environment as possible for all.

A huge amount of work goes into preparing for The British Conference of Undergraduate Research from our contributors, suppliers and staff; we would like to extend our thanks to all of them and look forward to collaborating with them for April 2021.

Registrations will automatically be carried over to 2021 unless otherwise requested. Please ensure you confirm all cancellations by email to BCUR20@leeds.ac.uk before 30 September.

If you will graduate between now and the new event dates or have graduated in the last year, we still welcome and value your presentation at next year’s event.

We will keep you updated as we progress towards our new conference date of 12 – 13 April.

We look forward to welcoming you to Leeds in April 2021.
