The Foundation has held public lectures on an extensive range of topics for the past twenty years. We organise lectures and seminars and support professional bodies to provide informative, educational lectures and events for the public, for free.
See below for the various themes around which our lectures and public events are focussed.
Events being held in collaboration with professional institutions can be viewed and booked by clicking the link above. All lectures are free to the public and have refreshments served beforehand.
The Foundation holds events on the theme of globalisation.
In 2012 we have three events in our Globalisation Series; a public lecture on 'The Nuclear Power Situation: Realising Global Opportunities' by Ian Hore-Lacy (World Nuclear Association), an event with schools by Tony Cunningham MP (Shadow International Development Minister) and a talk on 'Space, Energy and the Environment' by Professor Dr Kai-Uwe Schrogl (European Space Agency).
For further details on these events and to book, click on the link above.
The aim of this series is to debate and promote the role of the University in a globalised society, focusing on the local, regional and international level using real world case studies, and drawing on the experiences of practising educationalists and policy makers. By doing this it is hoped to promote a transition to a global outlook in education planning and delivery at individual, institutional and international levels.
