About this Event

In 2018, the University received funding from Research England to support research into challenges faced by low and middle income countries. 18 out of 47 applicants received grants of up to £50,000. This is the first of a series of seminars to give investigators the opportunity to share both research findings and what they learnt about the process of doing collaborative research.

If you would like to attend this event, we ask that you please register.
