The theme of the 2018 autumn seminar is Finding Water - Pathways to Water Information.  The ways and means you should know about accessing WATER information.

If you are on the brink of a career change, thinking about returning to study, wanting to take your research to the next level, or just in a dilemma about acquiring spatial information, then join our shared experience event.
