The society of Spanish Researchers in UK (SRUK) is pleased to present this interdisciplinary event organised in collaboration with the London Southbank University (LSBU).

We will have three outstanding speakers from different sectors followed by Q&A and a collaborative roundtable.
The speakers will give us an insight into their research, developed in the UK and used to generate a global result. You will have the opportunity to listen about the Global Challenges that humankind faces in order to produce sustainable food, purified water and newly-sourced heat, all three included in the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals.
This event will be a great opportunity to be inspired by the need for scientific interdisciplinarity and collaboration to tackle problems related to sustainability. As it happens, Partnership for the Goals is also a United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals!
