HCRI engage with students, researchers, practitioners, government and policy makers through our talks, seminars, workshops and conferences.

Students sat in a lecture theatre watching a lecturer.

Our events take place throughout the year and are open to students, staff and the general public from the UK and abroad. 

We also record most of our events for podcasts or video, which are published shortly after for anybody who couldn't attend live.

Our virtual events are open and accessible to all. This page will be updated regularly with sign-up information.
