Discoveries on your Doorstep

Discoveries on your Doorstep is a new series of events that showcases Surrey research and offers the opportunity for professionals and other members of the Guildford community to meet the people behind the discoveries at Surrey.

Last November, the University was delighted to launch the series with an evening on the theme ‘Science Delivering Global Wellbeing’ at the recently opened School of Veterinary Medicine with guests including the Mayor and Mayoress of Guildford. The evening drew together a mix of both junior and seasoned researchers presenting on a range of innovative work in areas including ageing, cancer care and patent law.

Local business owner Elaine Hickmott commented:

What an uplifting and interesting way to spend an evening. 'Discoveries On Your Doorstep' reminded me yet again how lucky we are to have such a wealth of talented, motivated researchers in our community.

The University will be hosting two further events in 2017: ‘Connecting Societies and Cultures’ and ‘Sustainable Cities, Economies, and Communities.’ Each evening in the series is free and open to all.
