3 April 2013 - 10:23 am Enter our PGR poster competition

Has someone ever asked about your research and you don’t know what to say?

I don’t know about you, but it’s a nightmare when I’m asked what my research is about.

Yes, that’s right, everyone. I’m at it again! There’s another craft fair on the cards and the time is nigh for you to apply for your very own stall.
