The TSBE Centre’s Urban Biodiversity Group (BioUrb) was set up earlier in the year to help provide support for those researching biological and ecological areas within the built environment.
On Wednesday 7th December 2016 the BioUrb Group hosted its first lunchtime seminar. Speakers included Rob Parkin and Kerry Elliott who came to talk about Green Parks success in becoming the only business park in the UK to achieve the Wildlife Trusts Benchmark Award. TSBE EngD students Thomas Chung and Katie McCausland also gave presentations on their research projects.
The event attracted attendees from 4 different schools within the university and was an excellent networking opportunity for those studying urban biodiversity; which is by its nature often a multi-disciplinary area.
It is hoped the next event will be hosted in the new year, so watch this space for updates
