NERC DTP Conference 1-2 September
Posted on 23/08/2016
King's is hosting the London student-led NERC DTP (Doctoral Training Programme) conference on 1st & 2nd September 2016.
The conference will showcase the world-leading research taking place within the two Programmes, featuring student presentations and keynote speakers. A preliminary programme is available here.
All geography students are invited to attend the panel discussions in the Safra Theatre from 14:40 to 15:30.
On 1 September, talks focus on science research into policy, featuring Rosie Woodroffe from ZSL, Georgina Mace from UCL and our own Professor Mike Hulme.
On 2 September there will be a discussion on 'getting the family-worklife balance right in academia', featuring Vivienne Jones from UCL, our own Rob Francis, Lizzie Boakes from UCL and Alex Steele, a PhD student at UCL.
Collaboration is a key theme of the conference – it is essential to our work as environmental researchers. The programme has been designed with this in mind, so as well as research presentations, there are workshops, networking activities and social events taking place over the two days.
For students this is a unique opportunity to both present work to date, and gain wider perspective of the environmental research.
For supervisors and partners this conference is not only a chance to see students present their work, but an opportunity to network with colleagues working in this space and engage with the DTPs.
