The IMS-MRL holds an annual retreat for staff and students. The format varies from year to year but usually includes presentations, prizes and social elements. In recent years, alongside research talks and posters from PhD students, post-docs and PIs, we have enjoyed sessions from external University speakers on topics including open access, implicit bias, time management and engaging the public. We have hosted these events at various venues including Robinson and Murray Edwards Colleges at the University as well as the Imperial War Museum at Duxford.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to hold an in-person event in either 2020 or 2021 but are hopeful we will be meeting again in early 2022.
