Midlands Soil Discussion Group meeting 2015 - cancelled

Dear All
I am afraid to say we did not have a sufficient number of people register for our meeting at the Allerton Project this year and so we have had to cancel the event on 22nd April (2015). Hopefully we will be able to organise another event next year. I'd be keen to find out why people could not manage to make it this year, so please let me know if you have a chance - maybe the date was not ideal for some? Best wishes, Barry

Soapbox Science 2015

Soapbox Science is an annual public science communication event that transforms public areas into an arena for public learning and scientific debate. The event follows the format of London Hyde Park’s Speaker’s Corner, which is historically an arena for public debate. With Soapbox Science, we want to make sure that everyone has the opportunity to enjoy, learn from, heckle, question, probe, interact with and be inspired by some of our leading scientists.

Early Careers Researcher Conference

The 2015 Early Career researchers’ (ECR) conference will be held at the University of York on the 7th and 8th of April.

Running since 1986, this conference brings together vibrant PhD students in the area of soil science.

An important aim of the ECR conference is to provide a platform for early career researchers to present their work and network with their peers and colleagues. This conference is, therefore, an excellent opportunity for students to showcase, discuss and disseminate their work in a formal setting.
