CCRI SEMINAR SERIES

As an international centre of research excellence, the CCRI seminar series aims to encourage and welcome speakers from a broad range of academic, policy and stakeholder backgrounds. The series, which has become an integral component of CCRI, is open to all, and is a flexible vehicle for the dissemination of research and discussion of policy and practice in a broad range of topics such as agriculture, society, food and environmental issues. It offers the individual an opportunity to present their work in a friendly setting, amongst academics that have a genuine passion and interest in the furthering of knowledge.

We often have international speakers that complement the internal and national academics that regularly present research activities which all contribute to knowledge transfer within the region and amongst our extensive networks.

For more information regarding this series, please email ccri@glos.ac.uk

All seminars begin at 12.15 and take place at the University of Gloucestershire Francis Close Hall Campus, Cheltenham, unless otherwise noted.

All seminars are free to attend. Follow this link to find travel instructions to FCH campus.

All visitors and participants at the seminar series should note that as with all of our public events, photographs may be taken during seminars for use in our marketing and communication materials.
