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.
