FUTURES 2019 - Up Late

What role will robots play in our lives? How can we produce enough food to feed us all? How can we work together to tackle climate change? This is your chance to find out the answers to these questions and more as we are joined by scientists and researchers from University of Bristol for a special ‘Up Late’ event organised by FUTURES 2019.  Grab a drink at the bar, wander around the exhibits, meet researchers behind exciting scientific discoveries and discuss the impact of their research on our everyday lives, societies and environment.


There'll also be a chance to hear three fascinating free talks:

  • Folding Nature into New Shapes - Professor Derek Wolfson, University of Bristol
  • Hidden Stories of Conflict – Pardoning Past Injustices: Professor Lois Bibbings, University of Bristol
  • Nature, Nurture & Luck - What shapes our health: Professor Nic Timpson, Principal Investigator, Children of the 90s health study
