National Postdoc Appreciation Week

Established in 2009, National Postdoctoral Appreciation Week (NPAW) takes place annually on the third week of September to celebrate the significant contributions researchers make to delivering and progressing research excellence.

Postdoc Appreciation Week

This initiative began in the United States of America, and now has been globally endorsed becoming a mainstream activity in the postdoctoral calendar in the UK.
