Students come together for CDT 2D Conference 2022

Students from the Graphene NOWNANO Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) based in Manchester and Lancaster, as well as the CDT in Graphene Technology at the Cambridge Graphene Centre, have come together for the CDT 2D Conference

The summer, in-person event took place at the De Vere Cranage Estate in Cheshire following a two-year break due to the pandemic. 

A number of guest speakers were invited from across academia and industry, providing opportunities for students to meet peers, network, and discuss cutting-edge research. 

The programme of events included student talks, guest speakers, poster sessions and a question-and-answer panel. Social events included a pub quiz, karaoke and a banquet dinner. 

Thanks have been extended to everyone involved – particularly the committee, who worked extremely hard to make the event a success. 

The 2022 joint 2D materials conference between the Universities of Manchester, Lancaster and Cambridge has come and gone! The event was held in the delightful De Vere Cranage Estate outside Manchester and saw roughly 100 students come together for the first time since 2019 to share their work, network and have fun. 

The event's oral sessions were full of insight, interaction and a genuine desire to learn from one another. In the evenings there were poster sessions and socials, which saw students relax and mix with the other cohorts and universities – for the first time, for many. The event seemed to be a real delight for all involved. The organising committee would like to thank all involved for their contribution to the conference and is already looking forward to the next instalment in the conference series.
