NERC Community Event

The Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) have issued an invitation to the environmental science community and its stakeholders to participate in a community event on the 20th November 2012 to be held at the Manchester Conference Centre, Weston Building, Sackville Street, Manchester.

This event will allow you to influence NERC’s strategic direction and research priorities from 2013 onwards. The day will be split into two parts; the morning session will focus on developing NERC’s new strategy and provide participants with an opportunity to discuss it with NERC’s Chief Executive and Directors. The afternoon session will be focused on NERC’s strategic research priorities. It will provide participants with an opportunity to engage Theme Leaders and NERC staff in discussions about emerging theme action plans.

The event will be open for registration from 10:00. The morning session will commence at 11:00 with a plenary session, followed by lunch at 12:30.

In the afternoon each theme session will be run twice and, therefore, it is possible for participants to attend discussions on two different themes.

An agenda for this event is available below.
