Interdisciplinary Seminar Series

The aim of the Interdisciplinary Research Seminar Series is to bring together a wide range of people from across the university to gain a deeper understanding of interdisciplinary research and how this approach provides a significant contribution towards advancing our understanding of today's pressing global challenges. 

Invited speakers will explore a topic relating to one or more of our interdisciplinary research groups. Seminars are free and open to everyone.
