Cambridge Zero Research Symposium: Law & Policy

This event has an academic focus and is mainly aimed at academics within Cambridge sharing their research with each other. The general public is welcome to attend. 


About this event

During this Michaelmas Term, Cambridge Zero is organising a second series of Virtual Research Symposia, to highlight all the exciting and ground-breaking research on climate change, net-zero and zero-carbon solutions happening across the University of Cambridge.

The aim of these events is to help build and strengthen our internal Cambridge Zero research community, and to encourage new connections and collaborations.

This term in particular, we also want to highlight important Cambridge research contributions in the run-up to the COP26 UN Climate Summit in November.

The Symposia will take place on Wednesday afternoons throughout the term, with each week focused on a different theme.
