U3A and University of Kent Research Collaboration Showcase

On 28th May the University of Kent will once again be hosting the Canterbury and District U3A in the Gulbenkian Theatre building, at the University of Kent campus. The event will run from 10.30am and finish at 4.30pm.

Throughout the day, there will be a series of short talks, presentations of research and posters to look at, as well as a workshops. Several university departments will participate. 

There will be opportunities to ask questions and discuss everyone's ideas. 

Importantly, U3A's own research group will be presenting several projects which they have carried out, some in collaboration with University of Kent, and some with other organisations. It is a real achievement which should be celebrated. Members of the National U3A committees have been invited. Members of the public will also be invited if there is space. 

The event is free but you do need to book your place. U3A members and University of Kent staff and students have priority booking until 5th April. To take advantage of priority booking you must use the password "Research" - this is case-sensitive if booking online.
