Lancaster University researchers working at the coalface of scientific discovery are set to share their knowledge with the public this autumn in a free series of science and technology talks in Lancaster.

The seven talks cover the latest research at Lancaster, from the infinite possibilities opened up by new wonder material graphene and the future of cloud computing to the science which is helping keep food on our table and helping parents understand their toddlers.

The weekly lecture series, at the Lancaster’s Storey Institute, starts on Tuesday, October 22. Each talk will take place from 7-8pm at The Storey, Meeting House Lane, Lancaster. The talks are completely free, though you will need to book online. To book tickets, visit:
