The Energy and Climate Change Division has been running a weekly ECCD Virtual Seminar Series, commencing from 23 June 2020.

The seminar will run every Wednesday lunchtime from 13:15-14:00 (BST) on Microsoft Teams.

One member of the ECCD team, or an invited speaker, will deliver a 20-30 minute talk on the topic of their choice, either related to their research or the research goals of the group. This will then be followed by 15 minutes of discussion with debate and idea generation for current and potential projects.

The next seminar will be posted shortly.

Please contact Dr Maj Alam at M.Alam@soton.ac.uk if you would like to join, present or have any questions about the seminar. We encourage a wide range of topics and discussions.
