We have an exciting array of International speakers visiting Plymouth University as part of the new Centre for Coastal and Ocean Science and Engineering (CCOSE) seminar series.
The seminars are open to members of the MPRG, CPRG and COAST research groups within CCOSE. They are also open to PhD, masters and undergraduate students within the marine area. People outside these groups are welcome, but an email to Dr Jon Miles who manages the series would be very welcome, to help keep track of numbers.
Seminars normally run from 3pm - 4pm on Wednesdays and last for approximately one hour, including time for questions. There will be an informal opportunity to meet the speaker afterwards.
