Our seminar programme is varied and offers both specialist and non-specialist topics. In particular, the talks in our lunchtime seminar programme (those starting at 1pm) are intended to be accessible for a general audience in an informal setting. These will deal with relevant research subjects at different stages of development. Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided and attendees are welcome to bring their own sandwiches, etc. with them.
