This interdisciplinary event brings together postgraduate researchers with an interest in topics related to buildings, towns, cities and their inhabitants. Participants will have the opportunity to explore the interconnections between the built environment and society, ecology and economy.

This free-of-charge one-day event combines presentations of papers and posters by postgraduate research students with discussions and dynamic group activities to enable exchange of information and development of new networks among researchers. Attendees will meet a wide variety of fellow researchers and share their views on the built environment, its future and the research that will inform it.

Celebrating the diversity of research, the event welcomes social and technical perspectives in fields from Archaeology to Zoology, and all ‘ologies’ in between.
