The University of Gloucestershire’s Countryside and Community Research Institute (CCRI) continues its annual Winter School for PhD researchers, guided by the theme of crossing boundaries. It will take place on 3rd & 4th March 2022.
The CCRI Winter School took place last month in exceptional circumstances. Although in the virtual environment it was still a warm and supportive one. PhD student Pippa Simmonds recounts the activities across the three days.
CCRI PhD student Caitlin Hafferty recently completed a four-month internship with the Welsh Government, during which time she authored six policy research reports.
The CCRI will be hosting its ‘Winter School’ in January and is inviting PhD students and early career researchers to submit abstracts if they would like to attend.
PhD student, Caitlin Hafferty has written an article for ‘Salmo Trutta’, the journal of the Wild Trout Trust. The article is focussed on the River Brue in the small Somerset town of Bruton and details community engagement and management of the river. Find out more and download Caitlin’s article for free.
2019 has started well for PhD student Kamilla Skaalsveen, with the publication of her first article which reviewed existing literature on the effects of farming practices on water quality and retention.
We are delighted to announce that thousands of students have been celebrating their graduations over recent days and amongst them are a number which the CCRI has played an integral role. Read more about who they are and the subjects which they have been studying.
