 Innovation Communities – upcoming events 

As part of the innovation communities project, two more communities will be meeting in October for the first time. These events will be focused on how specific technology is used in research and how we can collaborate and apply for funding collectively.  

These events are open to all staff and researchers who work with or have an interest in the topic. Lunch and refreshments will be served.
