Tizard Research Seminar Series

Each academic year we have a series of research seminars. This year lectures will take place at 17:00-18:00 hrs and will be held in Grimond Lecture Theatre 3 at the University of Kent, Canterbury. The lecture will be followed by a short informal drinks reception to which everyone is welcome.

The seminars are open to all - students, staff and external visitors are warmly invited to attend and there is no charge for either the lecture or the reception. Please note that events may be subject to change. The next series of seminars for the academic year 2018/19 will be posted shortly.
