Environ 2016

Environ 2016, the 26th Irish Environmental Researchers Colloquium will be held on 22nd March-24th March 2016, in University of Limerick. Conference convenor is Dr Ronan Courtney who will co-host the event in conjunction with the Environmental Sciences Association of Ireland. The Irish Environmental Researcher’s Colloquium (ENVIRON) is the largest annual gathering of environmental researchers in Ireland regularly attracting in the region of 300 delegates. The colloquium was first held in 1990 in Sligo Institute of Technology and has since been held in most of the Universities and Institutes of Technologies in Ireland (and Northern Ireland). The event provides an effective platform for PhD students and postdoctoral researchers to present their research to a wide audience.

Since its establishment in 1990 one of the main strengths of the colloquium has been that it attracts delegates from a wide variety of disciplines, and in a time when science, engineering and environmental science is becoming increasingly fragmented and specialised, the colloquium provides a unique opportunity for specialist researchers to learn what is happening outside their own research area.

The colloquium is very much an “Irish” event and has a loyal support base of research supervisors across Irish HEIs who send their researchers to attend and present at the event each year. The event therefore has a lot of “repeat” delegates, i.e., Irish researchers who come to the event on an annual basis and perceive the colloquium as a good way of catching up with the latest research in Irish environmental research along with networking with their research colleagues.

Generally held over 3 days and featuring; workshops for delegates, Q&A style topical panel debate which is opened to the public, plenary session addressing the theme with keynote presentations, sponsors exhibition area, student competition and in more recent years a career expo / CV clinic for attendees. Generally 100+ oral and 50+poster presentations take place in four concurrent sessions run over day 2 and day 3.
