Event Details

We have an active Water Science research group and many researchers working to the call of the Sustainable Catchments research challenge. These researchers invite the department to hear about the world-leading achievements so far and planned work for the future in this departmental seminar.

All students, staff and colleagues are encouraged to attend.

Join the conversation #LECSeminar!

The seminar forms part of the LEC Water Science & Sustainable Catchments Summer Workshop.

This informal workshop aims to showcase a range of LEC research activities in water and catchment science to all interested university staff, CEH staff, research students, visitors and MSc students.Throughout the afternoon’s presentations, we welcome your thoughts for new collaborations between any aspect of these two groups’ activities and specific projects or other research groups in LEC and elsewhere in the university.

All staff, visitors and PGR/PGT students are welcome to join specific presentations or the whole afternoon workshop. Please invite any visitors you have.
