6 November 2013: The latest research and funding in agri-tech

Themes for 2013/14
We've decided to take a more thematic approach to Research Speed Updating in 2013/14, as we'd like to bring people together to discuss broad areas of strategic interest to our researchers. Sessions will also include information on funding opportunities relevant to each strategic theme. Our intention is to bring people together with similar interests and help to identify potential funding opportunities. As ever though if you're just interested in hearing interesting talks, then come along (or if you just like cake!).
During the year we'll also be hosting speakers on the topics of:
- Big data
- Environmental change
- Health and wellbeing
- Behavioural change
If you have an interest in speaking on any of these topics, please let us know.
What would you like to hear about? Let us know: firstname.lastname@example.org.
For further information on the topics covered or to request a full version of the presentation given, please email Pete Hodges.
