The conference was attended by approximately 150 delegates and a large majority of which were postgraduate and undergraduate students from all over the UK. The keynote speakers were Mr. Mark Rozario (CEO, Agensi Innovasi Malaysia) and Mr. Philip Yeo (Chairman, SPRING Singapore & EDIS) and there were 6 panel speakers who, together with the keynote speakers, gave valuable insights to the delegates. Research students presented their work during the second half of the conference and the event concluded with a dinner at St. John’s College.

The event received very encouraging feedback from speakers, sponsors and delegates and the organising committee would like to thank all delegates and volunteers for their support and participation in the MSRC 2016.
