The Democratic Citizenship Theme is organising its first Lunch Meetup – Tuesday 27 March (11:00 to 13:00) in Richmond Building

to gather a varied group of researchers with an interest in the topics of ‘Gender, Equality & Diversity’.

Please book your place on Eventbrite taking place on Tuesday 27 March (11:00-13:00)

These topics are showing increasing potential for a number of different research, innovation or knowledge exchange opportunities. So please come along to tell us what you do, discuss your research ideas, talk about your network, have a think about relevant opportunities and funders for your research, as well as jump-start new collaborations and nurture the existing ones.

Researchers from all Faculties are welcomed as we would like to especially encourage interdisciplinarity.
