IPM Research Seminar, 22nd March 3-5pm

It's time for another exciting line-up of short, sharp bursts of place research from IPM members at Manchester Metropolitan University and some invited IPM speakers from further afield. Following the tried and tested format, presenters have just 5-10 minutes to share their current research projects, ideas, findings or impact with fellow members. Dr. Steve Millington will be chairing, with bells and whistles (literally).
In between all the talking we will be eating nibbles (yes there will be cheese and cake) and drinking tea, coffee and wine (perhaps not all at once). As usual, we will continue the networking and debate in The Salutation afterwards.
