Hey hey! We are so excited to team up with you to pull off an incredible event.

Unleash Your PhD is a 5-day event for researchers who want to explore the world beyond academia. The 2022 event will focus on communicating research to diverse audiences. A lot of knowledge is trapped in academic journals and conference proceedings. We want to help researchers free this knowledge, reach more people and create more impact!

How UYP 2022 Will work

Let’s do a quick rundown of how the whole thing will work.

The event will run from 24-28 October 2022 with 4-5 pre-recorded presentations running each day.

While the sessions are pre-recorded, there will be opportunities for attendees to ask questions and interact with each other and the speakers. You or your team are more than welcome to join us and engage with the attendees and answer any questions they may have related to your product or program.
