In recent years, a number of invited lectureships have become integral to our annual September CATS Meeting held in conjunction with the CSF.
- Since an agreement signed in 2018, STS has funded a speaker to attend our CATS Meeting.
- For 2020-24, an agreement was struck with the ESTS to fund a lecturer at both the CATS annual meeting and the ESTS annual meeting.
- CATS also has its own invited lectureships, which continue to grow.
