ScHARR Autumn Seminars

The ScHARR Seminar Series for the Autumn Semester 2014/15 is back on the 30th September, with a new look team and format! You can expect the usual excellent external speakers every fortnight, however new to the series is the presence of internal speakers once a month in-between these slots to display the world class research that takes place on our very own doorstep. Seminars are held on Tuesday lunchtimes (12.30-13.30) in the Pemberton Room, Regent Court (please note exceptions to this in the list below). Our programme has been confirmed as:
