Wessex Annual Congress 2017

 The second annual two day cross-NERC DTP student congress will be held at the University of Bristol on 10-11 April 2017 bringing together early career scientists from the GW4+, SPITFIRE and Oxford Environmental Research Doctoral Training Partnerships.

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.
