Oxford Climate Research Showcase

The event will: Showcase the broad and rich variety of world leading climate research going on in Oxford University. Stimulate diverse discussions of research and facilitate potential collaboration opportunities. Inspire students to get involved with amazing climate-related work, regardless of ones’ subject or academic background Grow connections between researchers and students, across discipline and silo boundaries.

Event format:

  • The event will open with two short plenary talks by prominent researchers on (i) specific, recent, exciting Oxford contributions, and (ii) Oxford’s general role in moving the state of the art forward.
  • Following these two opening talks, we’ll move to the virtual “social lounge” for the main event. This virtual area will have a 20-30 tables (one for each research group) that event participants can freely move between to network with and chat to the researchers there.
