CPSE Seminars

CPSE has been running a successful Seminar Series for many years and each year we invite distinguished national and international experts to the Centre. The seminars are put together by Dr Ruth Misener, Dr Alexandros Kiparissides and Dr Cristina Bertulli. Industrial Consortium Members can propose speakers and topics of research that interest them by contacting their company's Academic Friend. The CPSE Seminar Series video recordings are available and can be downloaded
