The Brunel University London Public Lecture Series 2020

Brunel Public Lecture Series

From climate emergencies to huge healthcare challenges, we’re accelerating towards a global crisis.

But does that mean we’re powerless?

Brunel University London believes that ‘local’ is the new ‘global’ – and their researchers can show you just some of the ways in which world-changing discoveries, innovations and social initiatives might be closer to home than you think.

Doctor’s Orders


On Wednesday 12 February, Brunel will show you new research in health economics, sociology and digital services,

asking why and how people make decisions on their own health, unpicking the language behind period poverty in the media,

and investigating just how simulations could save the NHS.




People Power


In Brunel’s second lecture on Wednesday 19 February, experts in media, environmental science and

design will look at the global importance of involving local people in research,

driving community change through radio, and using a locally-designed robotic boat to beat pollution

Climate Control


Finally on Wednesday 26 February, hear about research helping to preserve our environment and culture,

considering how anthropological research has informed conservation of orangutans, 3D light technologies

which bring entire museums to life on your phone and the sociological side of laboratory-grown meat.


Join the Brunel team from 6pm and be ready to ask your questions. Then take the conversation into the atrium for complimentary drinks reception ahead of our lecture which starts at 6.30pm. Find out more and book your place here.
