The next Northumbria Research Forum will take place on Friday 24th February, on the theme of Climate and the Environment.
Climate change and its impact on the way we live may well be the most pressing issue facing humankind. Research into ways of living, social and physical planning of our environment, legal, technological, environmental and social aspects of climate in our lives all invite research and analysis. This forum will offer an opportunity to present existing research and consider ways forward.
The Research Forums provide a simple platform for staff to communicate their research to colleagues and to find out about cognate research that might be of interest. They provide an opportunity to bring Northumbria’s research community together around a variety of research themes and disciplines, and to reflect issues and topics where research originating from diverse disciplinary bases might be taken further in collaboration.
Presentations are expected to be informal and brief (maximum 10 minutes) and should be designed to inform a general audience about the research interests and activities of a colleague. PowerPoint facilities will be available, but are not encouraged.
The Forum takes place on the 24th February and is scheduled from 10.30am – 2.30pm, although it may conclude with lunch dependant on final numbers attending. It will be held in Room 205, Sutherland Building. Lunch and refreshments will be available. It is not necessary to attend the full Forum and you are welcome to join/leave the Forum as teaching committments allow. All Northumbria University staff who wish to attend should register on the forum website.
