The UK Climate Resilience Programme (UKCR) is pleased to announce a short series of webinars for early 2023.
This is a continuation of our successful, long-running lunchtime webinar series, which was established in 2020 and often attracted between 200 and 300 registrations. The webinars will showcase projects conducted for UKRI and by the Met Office, for the SPF UKCR Programme and thematic topics.
With participation from both researchers and stakeholders, the hour-long weekly webinars will be moderated by the UKCR Champion team.
Each webinar will provide an overview of a project, its key findings and its implications. This will be followed by a response from a relevant stakeholder/non-academic partner, who will be invited to provide their perspective on the research process and outputs. The webinar will conclude with an open Q&A session with both panellists.
All webinars are on Wednesday or Thursday lunchtime, running from 12.00-13.00 (GMT) unless otherwise stated.
Update: due to circumstances beyond our control, there have been some changes to our original listing. Dates will be updated here as they are confirmed.
