Environmental Science Collaborative Research Project(s) NERC Showcase 2020 - NERC Wales Showcase 2021


The NERC showcase events planned to be held in Wales in 2020 have now been postponed owing to the exceptional circumstances brought about by the coronavirus and a need to focus on COP26 activities in 2021. We will aim to plan a NERC showcase in 2022 and will work closely with our partners in due course to plan this.
