These very popular events provide doctoral students with an ideal environment and a beneficial opportunity to have dedicated time to specifically focus on writing or projects relating to their PhD/EngD, and in particular writing up their thesis or producing research/conference papers to publish their research.

Day 1 will start with a short discussion on writing objectives in pairs, and individuals will set their own short, medium and long-term writing goals, including what they want to achieve at the retreat over the time facilitated sessions.
