Event description

Description

We are delighted to invite you to join our Festival of Interdisciplinary Research on 3rd May 2018. You will have the opportunity to meet people from the University's Themes and Platforms which drive and support the development of interdisciplinary research. The event will showcase examples of how our researchers work across the disciplines to tackle global grand challenges and provide the chance to make new connections.

The new Chancellor of the University of Leeds, Dame Jane Francis will be the keynote speaker for this event. As Director of the British Antarctic Survey, Dame Francis has a strong understanding of the value of bringing different disciplines together to achieve great things.
