The following are a number of opportunities/events for  technical colleagues.

New Scientist Live 2019

Technicians Make it Happen will be at this year’s New Scientist Live in London on the 10-13 October 2019, and we want you to join us!

If you’re a technician, love your job, and you want to help us inspire the next generation of talent, get in touch! For one day only, we’ll ask you to talk to visitors about your company, career path & explain how technicians really make things happen. TMiH will cover your costs and pay for your registration to a relevant professional body of choice for an entire year!
