Our network organises tri-annual events which take place at partner institutes across the UK. These events are designed to put the spotlight on areas of specialist IGT research, stimulate new ideas and promote collaborations. The network offers its members funding support for travel to these events. We also list a range of other IGT events from the community, if you would like to add your listing please contact katie.konyn@kcl.ac.uk.
