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.

Seminars normally begin at 12:15 and run for around 1-hour.

To find out what seminars are planned, please visit our upcoming events page on Eventbrite.

Please book through Eventbrite to avoid dissappointment, and to ensure that you receive attendance information or links to online seminars, and any important changes that we may have to make.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 situation seminars will be online using the ‘Zoom’ platform. This may require registration in advance to avoid any possible technial difficulties. 

All visitors and participants at the seminar series should note that as with all of our public events, recordings will be made during seminars and of Q&A sessions for use in our communication materials.

All of our previous online seminars can be found on our YouTube channel.
