NERC Community Event
20 November 2012
Manchester Conference Centre, Weston Building, Sackville Street, Manchester
NERC invited the environmental science community and its stakeholders to participate in a community event on 20 November 2012.
The presentations from the afternoon sessions are now available at the end of this page.
This event will allow you to influence NERC's strategic direction and research priorities from 2013 onwards. The day will be split into two parts; the morning session will focus on developing NERC's new strategy and provide participants with an opportunity to discuss it with NERC's Chief Executive and Directors. The afternoon session will be focused on NERC's strategic research priorities. It will provide participants with an opportunity to engage Theme Leaders and NERC staff in discussions about emerging theme action plans.
The event will be open for registration from 10:00. The morning session will commence at 11:00 with a plenary session, followed by lunch at 12:30.
In the afternoon each theme session will be run twice and, therefore, it is possible for participants to attend discussions on two different themes.
An agenda for this event is available below.
Early registration is recommended.
Please use our online registration form to apply to attend the event. The deadline for registering to attend is 09 November 2012.
Attendees were provided with a short summary of all the TAPs. More detailed discussions took place in the breakout sessions after short presentations on the themes.
The summary and presentations provided here are for the purposes of consulting with the community - these are not the final versions of the TAPs as they have not yet been submitted to, or approved by, NERC Council.
