What is an abstract? An abstract is a one-paragraph summary of a research project. The audience for these abstracts covers a broad scope from specialist to non-specialist and so the language used must be easily accessible to all. It should briefly describe the scope, purpose, results, and conclusions of your work. Further information can be found here. Examples of abstracts from previous events in this series can be found here and here
