The congress will provide the opportunity for all students across the three research themes of Solid Earth, Living World and Changing Planet to present their work as a poster or short 3 minute presentation with the additional opportunity for 2nd and 3rd years students to give longer 15 minute presentations to their peers.
Students will also work together to develop a ‘Highlight Topic’ for submission to NERC to ‘address some of the major challenges of the 21st century: e.g. benefiting from natural resources, resilience to environmental hazards, and managing environmental change’. Your challenge, in groups, will be to identify and develop a Highlight Topic, to prepare a 1 paragraph ‘executive summary’ and a 3 minute pitch, which you will present at the end of the meeting. The winning Highlight Topic will be submitted to NERC for formal consideration.
