The event was organised by the University’s Sub-Saharan African Research Network (SSARN) and the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS).
The diverse two-day programme outlined a sample of African-based research involving staff from the University of Warwick and colleagues located at Warwick’s strategic partner institutions across the globe, as well as highlighting funding opportunities and a range of teaching collaborations with Africa.
This series of 14 podcasts recorded over the two days covers the following topics:
- Youth and Children
- Food and the Environment
From the beginning of 2010, the T2K experiment will fire a beam of muon-neutrinos from Tokai on Japan's east coast, 300km accross the country to a detector at Kamioka. It hopes to investigate the phenomenon of "neutrino oscillations" by looking for "muon neutrinos" oscillating into "electron neutrinos".There are 62 institutes across 12 different countries contributing to the T2K experiment. Within this broad collaboration Warwick has made some important and significant contributions towards construction, quality assurance, calibration hardware and software analysis.
