I had a fantastic time at the MRS Conference last week – it is always great to see so many people from the MR industry in one place as well as bumping into former colleagues from my research days. Also our MD Sinead was on the panel debating the skills researchers will need in the future, which was very interesting.
The conference was really well organised with lots packed into the programme. I particularly enjoyed the big data debate and the session on sillynomics. As a recruiter it is a brilliant resource for me to keep up to date on the new trends in the industry. As an ex-researcher, it is just really interesting to hear about new methods and the applications of research today. MR is such an ever-evolving industry with some very inspiring thought leaders.
Looking forward to Conference 2014 already!
