The Aspect Forum 17th November

The Aspect Forum is held every six months and is a chance for Aspect members to come together to meet and share. Aspect Forum is open to employees of all Aspect member institutions. In some cases, speakers and guests are invited to join (for example, if they are connected to specific Aspect funded projects).

The agenda for this fourth Aspect Forum includes: an update on new members and Aspect sustainability plans; ‘speed networking’ sessions to meet your peers; and breakout sessions with Aspect’s funded project teams (including recipients of Aspect Phase 3 funding). The breakouts will focus on sharing the learnings/outputs from the last year, and signposting opportunities for members to get involved in the new and ongoing projects for the final year.

The Forum will be hosted on the new Aspect Member’s Platform. If you are not already registed on the platform, make sure to sign up before the event: To join on the day, login to the member platform, and click the ‘Forum’ event to join the zoom link.

Timings are indicative only – the final agenda will be shared closer to the date. The Aspect Programme Team will be contacting the funded project team leaders in September to confirm participants and topics for parallel sessions, and will contact recipients of Phase 3 funding once those decisions are made (mid-October).
