News and Events
Under EPSRC's Royal Charter, one of PIADS CDT's primary objectives is to "generate public awareness; communicate research outcomes; encourage public engagement and dialogue, and disseminate knowledge". CDT PIADS recognises the importance of public engagement and outreach as vital components of the CDT programme and our students are involved in a range of activities across cohort years. Our Outreach & Public Engagement programme seeks to create new and enhance existing collaborative working relationships between our students and local schools and colleges, the general public, NGOs, industry partners, wider university departments and even mutual Centres for Doctoral Training.
The 7th Annual PIADS CDT Research Showcase (21st JUNE - 22nd JUNE)
Every year we gather to showcase research performed by the CDT students. This year hosts talks on the theme of sustainability from members of the external photonics community. We have witnessed drastic changes in global climate patterns and this is expected to accelerate. The keynote speakers discussed the role of photonics in reaching a more sustainable world.Our Annual Events
