Climate Change Research in Practice – Tyndall PhD Conference
23rd - 25th April 2014, University of Manchester.
The Tyndall PhD Conference is an annual event, open to all PhD students involved in topics related to climate change. It is an excellent opportunity for early career researchers from multiple disciplines to discuss their work and ideas with a wider community of PhDs.
Research impact is increasingly derived from engagement with non-academic institutions - no less so for PhD researchers, who often number among the few experts in their fields. This year’s conference, Climate Change Research in Practice: Addressing Speed, Scale and Scope, aims to demonstrate the messages and tools PhD researchers may draw upon in engaging with policy, industry and civil society.
We encourage and will select abstracts that comment on Research in Practice, in particular those that refer to the scale of the climate change challenge, appropriate rates of change, or the scope for engagement with different sectors and actors in society. In this spirit of interdisciplinary research, presentations are encouraged to be accessible to a non-specialist audience and will fall under the four broad topics of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research:
The Tyndall PhD conference actively encourages researchers from a wide range of climate change related fields to participate. By attending, delegates will benefit from the experience of communicating their work to an audience comprised of researchers from different backgrounds, and will also have the opportunity to broaden their knowledge of contemporary debate and research centred around climate change.
The aim is to provide a valuable opportunity for students to present work through a series of discussions, presentations and poster sessions, as well as share ideas and network with other researchers within the UK and further afield.
The conference is free to attend. Refreshments, lunches and evening meals will be provided, but no provision is made for travel or accommodation costs.
Abstract deadline: 5pm, 21st February 2014
Abstract response and presentation shortlist: 24th March 2014
