The CCRI Seminar Series is open to everyone and aims to provide a flexible vehicle for the dissemination of research and discussion of policy and practice in rural research and policy. The series aims to encourage speakers from a broad range of academic, policy and stakeholder backgrounds to take part, and it remains an important contributor to knowledge transfer within the region.

The seminar series remains a central part of CCRI’s role as an international centre of excellence in rural research and knowledge transfer. For more information regarding this series, please email

All seminars begin at 12.15 and take place at the University of Gloucestershire Oxstalls Campus, unless otherwise noted.

The seminars are free to attend, but if you intend to come along it would be useful if you could let us know by sending an email. This will also enable us to inform you of any changes to the programme, which can happen from time to time.

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.
