What is the event about?

This is the fourth annual Research Day since the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding between the University of Exeter (UoE) and Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML) in July 2013, which reconfirmed our commitment to work together more strategically to grow our research activities and leverage research funding. Collaboration was pump-primed through establishment of the Collaboration Fund, which funded 16 projects over four rounds. 

Event aims

The aim of the research day is to build on existing partnerships and facilitate further collaborative discussion between our institutions.
