Event description

Description

CEE’s autumn symposium 2019 will highlight the diverse array of research conducted by CEE members and provide opportunities for discussion and mingling to foster collaborations across CEE institutions.

The Symposium bring together researchers from all of the CEE institutions to provide a series of 10 minute flash talks which cover a range of topics from Species Extinction to Biodiversity and Plastic Pollution to Mapping Genes, providing thought provoking conversations over lunch, coffee, and followed by an evening wine reception.

All staff, postdocs, and students are encouraged to attend to jump-start the academic year and engage with other London-area researchers in ecology and evolution.
