Event description

Description

The United Kingdom has become one of Colombia’s most important partners in science. There is increasing interest in joint research efforts between Universities, research centres and laboratories in both countries, which has motivated mobility as well as meaningful academic collaboration.

Don't miss the chance to network with the institutions and practitioners that are leading this joint effort. Through a series of panel debates and presentations, we will discuss these opportunities and provide a better understanding of what doing science in and with Colombia means.

Some of our confirmed speakers include:

  • César Ocampo, Head of Colciencias (Colombia’s Science and Technology Department

  • Ian Owens, Director of Science, Museum of Natural History

  • Tony McEnery, Chief Executive of ESRC

  • Mike Maunder, Board director of the Eden Project

  • Patrick Shipp, International Science and Innovation Directorate, BEIS

  • Colin B. Grant, Vice-President (International), University of Southampton

  • Federica Di Palma, Director of Science, Earlham Institute

  • Vanessa Restrepo-Schild, Researcher, Department of Chemistry, University of Oxford
