March 2020 – The PI attended a research workshop in Brasilia (Brazil) hosted by CNPq and promoted by the Conselho Nacional das Fundações de Amparo à Pesquisa (Confap), in partnership with the British Academy and Newton Fund.
The workshop involved researchers across all career stages who were interested in an interdisciplinary discussion on issues related to Climate Change, Cities & Infrastructure, and Inequalities, and who wanted to build on their Newton Fund-supported projects to develop further international and interdisciplinary research collaborations.
This event provided opportunities for engagement with policymakers, and participants were able to raise the profile of their research and discuss research findings with colleagues across disciplines. This was an opportunity to enhance the visibility of our ERC project TRADITION and the vibrant research environment at ICTA and the Dept. of Prehistory at UAB.
