We’re bringing them all to you in our new online lecture series.
During these unprecedented times we think the Essex Spirit is more important than ever. We hope this new online lecture series is going to give people around the world the chance to be inspired by research at University of Essex. Our research is committed to engaging with the key issues we face in our lives – including of course the impact of COVID-19. These lectures are also a chance for our University community to forget lockdown and come together to share ideas and ask difficult questions.
