The route to successful research centres



Experienced marine biologist Professor Mike Elliott will talk about ways to create successful research centres in a presentation at the University of Lincoln on Wednesday 5 March.


Professor Elliott is Director of the Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies (IECS) at the University of Hull. He will discuss Research for knowledge and wealth creation and improving quality of life. The talk will be illustrated using examples from the marine area.


A marine biologist with a wide experience of biological and environmental analyses, Professor Elliott also has interests in marine management and policy. He has studied the biota and physical characteristics of estuaries in great detail, and in particular the Humber. This work has included studies of the water quality, zooplankton, intertidal and subtidal benthic communities and fish communities. Recently, Professor Elliott co-authored The Estuarine Ecosystem (Third Edition).


The Institute of Estuarine and Coastal Studies (IECS) is a multi-disciplinary research and consultancy organisation set up to utilise the facilities and expertise in coastal science and management within the University of Hull.


The talk begins at 2pm in room AR0107, in the Architecture building at the University’s Brayford Pool campus. Everyone is welcome.
