Interdisciplinary Clubs and Groups

In addition CCACE supports a number of interdisciplinary clubs and groups. Seven currently active groups are run by Centre members.


Themed Discussion Days

CCACE is also introducing a new format for scientific discussion: a series of themed discussion days. Each meeting, designed to facilitate academic discussion, will centre around one scientific theme with various invited speakers (both internal and external) giving a range of viewpoints and information. The meetings are closed academic sessions and are not open to the lay public as our seminars are.
