Progressive Palaeontology is a UK-based conference affiliated with the Palaeontological Association, intended for early-career and student palaeontologists. It provides a platform for friendly discussion and feedback in a low-pressure environment, and networking between young palaeontologists. 

Progressive Palaeontology 2017 is to be hosted at the University of Leicester from the 1st to the 3rd of June 2017, and we would like to encourage as many delegates as possible to attend. Due to the student-led nature of the conference, many potential attendees struggle with funding. Therefore, we plan to raise extra money to support low-income and international students and allow them to gain valuable conference experience and networking opportunities that will hopefully encourage them to pursue their interest in academia and palaeontology.
