Senior Academic Seminar Series

The Senior Academic Seminar Series is the principal regular research event in the school's calendar, distinct from the range of themed workshops and research centre seminars run each week during the academic term. 

Our aim is to attract eminent researchers to Nottingham, with name recognition outside their fields of specialisation, and for them to present on topics that will attract interest among the full community of faculty, research fellows and PhD scholars.
