The MRS 2021 Conference and AMSR 2021 Spring Event were conducted entirely as video conferences. Interviews conducted with speakers at the Archive’s February 2020 event were filmed in the IPA’s library before the event began, a month before the first UK lockdown. You can also review our news item on that evening’s proceedings as a whole.
