Recent Events

The Sustainability Research Network aims to bring together early careers and postgraduate researchers to facilitate knowledge exchange, promote interdisciplinary collaboration and discussion, and raise awareness of new opportunities, in a variety of ways.

We have organised a number of events since our launch in May 2013:


  • Researcher-led events: In association with the Graduate School, we have invited postgraduate, early career and research staff at the University of Nottingham to present their work and hold discussions around their research interests.
  • Guest Speaker Events: We have hosted a number of external Guest Speakers at SRN events, including:
    • Dr Helen Sneddon, Head of Green Chemistry Performance Unit, GlaxoSmithKline R&D Ltd
    • Dr. Kevin Hard, CEO at EvoEnergy
    • Dr. Jo Horton, Corporate Responsibility (CR) Manager at E.ON
    • Dr. Chris Blencowe, Senior Sustainability Consultant at Hilson Moran
    • Graham Gardiner, Director of Aspiren
  • Sustainability Research Network Launch Event (May 2013): This event saw 40 postgraduate and early careers researchers come together to discuss their research projects, learn more about sustainability research and teaching at The University of Nottingham and gain careers advice from a multi-sector panel.
