University of Edinburgh 2020 Environment & Society Research Mixer

University of Edinburgh 2020 Environment & Society Research Mixer

29th January 2020, 13:45 to 16:30

Want to explore possible research or practice opportunities? Interested in making useful connections and sharing sector knowledge...?

Every year, hundreds of students graduate from the University of Edinburgh with Masters degrees in Environment and Society related programmes. The Research Mixer, organised by GESA, School of Geosciences and the Department of Social Responsibility and Sustainability, is a chance for practitioners and academics to share sector knowledge and explore possible research or practice opportunities.

For students, it's a unique opportunity to discuss their own research ideas with our academics and practitioners. The Mixer is made up of discussion groups around Research 'Clusters'. Each Cluster is a grouping of interest within environment and society. The clusters include:

  • Climate Management
  • Environmental Protection
  • Ecosystem Services & Ecological Economics
  • Environmental Policy & Politics
  • Social Responsibility & Sustainability
  • Sustainable Development & International Development
  • Energy

During the sessions, academics and practitioners will have the opportunity to quickly share sector knowledge, potential projects, and research priorities. Students will have an opportunity to outline their research interests and to make connections.

There will be two breaks which all attendees are encouraged to use for more in depth conversations.

For any questions, please contact Kerry.Cheek@ed.ac.uk at the Department for Social Responsibility and Sustainability.
