Professor Tim Benton (Leeds University), the UK Champion for Food Security, was the keynote speaker at an event to launch the University's newest Strategic Research Group, Nexus Science. Professor Paul Kemp, co-chair of the group along with Dr Joel Smethurst, kept the proceedings to time and presided over the facilitated workshop. Professor Benton's talk first defined what we mean by the Nexus and then ably identifed the Big Challenges that formed the subject of the ensuing activities.

There was some busy networking over lunch as participants met new people from other faculties and this was followed by much lively debate within the workshop groups. 

The outputs from each group were recorded and will form the basis of future activities.
