Lunchtime Research Seminars 2010-11
As in previous years, the Lunchtime Research Seminars are an opportunity for academics from across the University to get together to hear about work happening in other Schools, to share expertise, and potentially identify areas of synergy that might lead to future collaboration.
Each seminar will be ‘hosted’ by an invited academic. The host has chosen the topic and, in collaboration with Research Services, has identified speakers to discuss issues around the topic.
The programme reflects the diverse range of individuals who kindly volunteered to host a session.
For each event, lunch is provided from 12:30pm, and the Seminars themselves start at 1pm. Venues will be confirmed in due course.
All are welcome. Please contact Phil Ward (extension 7748) if you would like to attend.
