You'll also have access to a full on-demand catalogue of recorded poster presentations covering the latest project progress and the simulated Poster Author Sessions provide the chance to follow up with poster authors in interactive discussions. Wrapping up the event join in a virtual tour of RAHR's malting production plant and pilot brewery and join your colleagues in a fun Scab Trivia networking session. Full program details coming soon!
