The aim of this meeting is to bring together the groups undertaking hearing research in Cambridge so that we can update each other about our current and future research programmes and discuss how we should present ourselves to the outside world in the future.

People should leave the meeting knowing the interests and expertise of the different research groups in Cambridge, so that they understand where there might be opportunities for collaboration. We will also discuss how to strengthen connections and visibility of hearing research in Cambridge.
