TODAY! The Young People’s Transitions Conference — briefing papers now available

Today we welcome over 100 delegates from academia, government and the third sector to the University of Edinburgh for our Conference ‘Young People’s Transitions: Dimensions, Difficulties and Diversity’. We are so pleased to get this day underway with all of our delegates and our partners at the Centre for Research on Families and Relationships!

To see what we’re up to today, check out the conference programme or follow some of our friends who will be tweeting today with #yptconf2017.

For those who are unable to attend the conference, our 8 PhD/ECR presenters were gracious enough to write briefing papers that we have compiled into a compendium for you to view. These papers are short works that cover key aspects of their research they will share with delegates today.

Access the briefing papers here

We also plan to create a document synthesising the discussion of today’s Listening Session, which will be up on the Network website in the coming months. Thank you all for your support of this project, and we look forward to staying in touch about this work and others in the coming months.


Young People’s Transitions Conference — full conference programme now available!

In just two weeks the University of Edinburgh will welcome 150 delegates from a variety of disciplines and sectors for Young People’s Transitions: Dimensions, Difficulties and Diversity on April 21st. In preparation for the Conference, and for those unable to attend but who would like to know more about the day’s events, the full conference programme is now available. This includes bios and abstracts for our three keynote speakers, and abstracts for all eight of the PhD/Early-Career Researcher presentations that will take place throughout the day.

Please take a look at the Conference Programme here.

A few days before the Conference we will also be publishing on the website a compendium of eight briefing papers from the PhD/ECR presenters on the work they will share at the Conference. This will allow for those unable to attend the Conference (or delegates not able to attend all presentations) an opportunity to access all the great research from our presenters. Stay tuned!
