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 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.

The seminars are free to attend, but we request that you reserve your place on the seminar’s Eventbrite page via the ‘Book your free place’ link.

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.
