Event Details

The College of Science and Engineering Research Away day will be held at the College Court, on the 20th of September, 9:30-18:30 (but discussion will continue later).

The focus of the day will be on communicating and discussing the best of our excellent research and research impact (something we don't do enough of), providing everyone with opportunities to better understand and engage with priority and emerging areas of research excellence across the college, and research from outside their disciplinary expertise. 

The schedule for the day will include workshops, space for discussion, talks and posters (see below). The programme of speakers is currently being finalised, but will include talks that span the breadth of College research and extend beyond our ‘boundaries’. We have a diverse range of excellent speakers, primed to communicate the excitement of their research and its impact to a broad audience from across CSE. The outline programme below includes the speakers presenting work from our Research Centres, aligned with College Research Themes, but we have plenty of other exciting talks lined up.

We also have space and time in the programme for posters (and, potentially, other interactive display items). If you have a poster you would like to display and discuss, please indicate this when you register.

Please be aware that:

  • College Court cannot accommodate all of us, so book at your earliest opportunity to ensure you have a place.
  • Registration to attend is open first to research active staff, but will be opened to the PGR community next week, so book now to ensure you have a place on workshops and at the afternoon sessions.
  • Places in workshops are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis. They will run concurrently, so please book only one.
  • Please book all tickets that apply - if you book for "workshop and afternoon", you need to book a specific workshop as well.
  • For catering purposes, please indicate if you will be having lunch - if you are there for the whole day, you are automatically included for lunch. If you attend the afternoon session only and wish to attend the networking lunch, please book a ticket for lunch at the check out.
