FaST Talks: Faculty research talks

14 February, 1-2pm, Room C.1.15

To tie in with the Science festival there will be a session showcasing interesting research from across the Faculty. We plan to have half a dozen ‘lightning talk’ style presentations, where speakers drawn from various research Clusters will talk for just five minutes each about interesting findings or ideas from their research area.

This should be a great way to get a flavour of what other people are doing. The session will be followed by a Faculty social event in the Pavilion with afternoon tea provided, where discussion and networking can continue.

If you would like to attend the seminar and following social event please RSVP to Laura Mattarini ([email protected]), by Wednesday 12 February.

We look forward to seeing you there!
