Space 42, Scarman

  • Does your research seek to create sustainable resilient communities ?
  • Have you been thinking about expanding your research network and meeting researchers from other disciplines ?

About the Event

This Community Networking event taking place the 27th of May at the Scarman Conference Centre - our first in-person networking event since the Covid restrictions have eased - is a must for anyone in the Sustainable Cities research community. It is our hope that the event will highlight the role that the GRP can play in your research career development, as well as re-energising the cross-departmental relationships that make our research community vibrant. This half-day event will showcase how Warwick University is growing a thriving community of practice focused on facilitating transdisciplinary, innovative, and impactful urban research, as well as provide a supportive place for discussion regarding new research ideas. We especially encourage early career researchers to attend.

A key focus of the Sustainable Cities GRP is the collaboration between multidisciplinary researchers across the university. Our goal is to further develop this network of over 100 researchers with a portfolio of more than 60 funded projects.

It will be an excellent opportunity to meet our colleagues from a variety of departments, share research insights, discuss challenges & opportunities, and discuss the kinds of GRP activities you would like to see in the next academic year.

Our discussions will revolve around the themes listed below.

Economic sustainability

Environmental sustainability

Social and cultural sustainability

Risk and resilience

Urban data and knowledge

Participation is free. Places are limited so please register early to avoid disappointment.
