Challenge Accepted! Creating Solutions for Horizon 2020

Our third annual sustainability research event took place on Friday 2 May 2014 in the Roland Levinsky Building at Plymouth University attracted over 170 delegates.

The event included updates from Plymouth University researchers, presentations from external partners, an exhibition from research groups and centres and poster displays from Early Career Researchers and PhD students. The theme of the event was based around the 'Tackling Societal Challenges' pillar of the European funding stream, Horizon 2020.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the event such a great success. If you would like to know more, or collaborate around any of the research from our event, please contact us.
