EI Seminars

The Environmental Intelligence Seminar Series is a joint initiative of the CDT and the Exeter Environmental Intelligence Research Network. The  series of weekly seminars showcases EI research across all disciplines at the University of Exeter and provides a platform for external organisations to share their interests in EI with our community.
