Exploring multi-hub conferences: interview with Sally Lowell

Posted by , on 7 March 2024

Transportation is one of the main environmental issues of a scientific conference, usually accounting for around half of the event’s total CO2 emissions.

But innovative ideas can help mitigate this impact, without compromising the benefits of bringing people together. Sally Lowell and her colleagues recently ran a multi-hub conference across three different regional locations for the European Society for Developmental Biology meeting which ran in September 2023.

We interviewed Sally to find out more about how the event went.
