Meet the team
It all started in 2019 when Sally Lowell, Alastair Downie, Kate Storey and Holly Shiels, members of the Board of Directors, had the idea for an initiative that would provide technical, logistical and financial support to help biologists make their conferences more sustainable. So the Sustainable Conferencing Initiative was born. Meet the team:
Prof. Sally Lowell, developmental and stem cell biologist at the Centre for Regenerative Medicine, University of Edinburgh, UK.
Dr Holly Shiels, cardiac physiologist at the Division of Cardiovascular Sciences, University of Manchester, UK.
Prof Laura Machesky, FRSE, Cell biologist at the Beatson Institute for Cancer Research. UK.
Our Blog was created to share information on various aspects of event sustainability and new technologies.
We want to hear from you
We want to gather brief case studies from conference organisers, speakers and delegates about interesting conference models and intriguing new technologies.
Get in touch to share your thoughts.
