Research Webinars

The CAS research webinars are delivered by leading academic and industrial researchers, helping practioners stay up to date with the latest developments in their field. They are open to our students, academic team and Tier 2 partners. Tier 2 partners can access the full programme of research webinars, either joining live or watching the recordings via the training e-Portal.

Our first webinar is available to all:

Dr David Topping (University of Manchester): Machine Learning in Aerosol Science

Recorded Friday 25th October 2019

New webinar programme to be announced for Autumn 2020

Details coming soon of our programme of webinars for Autumn 2020, drawing together speakers from a broad range of research areas across aerosol science.
