Have you ever heard of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals? Don't miss our Global Challenges Roundtable on Food, Water and Heat

The society of Spanish Researchers in UK (SRUK) is pleased to present this interdisciplinary event organised in collaboration with London South Bank University (LSBU).

We will have two confirmed outstanding speakers from different sectors followed by Q&A and a collaborative roundtable. These two specialists are:

Dr Luiza Campos - a civil engineer with a specialism in water technologies for decentralised systems. She has had an impressive 30 year career spanning both private and public sector across Brazil and the UK. She uses her practical, industry-based knowledge to inform her teaching and research and is looking forward to presenting at the Global Challenges roundtable and hearing the opinions of her peers.

Professor Robert Tozer - is an expert in mission critical facilities reliability and energy strategies, assessments, training and workshop facilitation and a recipient of Datacenter Dynamics LATAM award for Outstanding Contribution to Industry in 2012. Robert is a Visiting Professor at London South Bank University and author of over sixty technical and conference papers on data centre energy efficiency and reliability, free cooling systems, sustainability, thermo-economics and trigeneration. He is presenting on heat recovery opportunities from data centres and is interested to see what conversations can be sparked within this prevalent topic.

The speakers will give us an insight into their research, developed in the UK and used to generate a global result. You will have the opportunity to hear about the global challenges that humankind faces in order to produce sustainable food, purified water and newly-sourced heat, all three included in the UN´s Sustainable Development Goals.

This event will be a great opportunity to be inspired by the need for scientific interdisciplinary and collaboration to tackle problems related to sustainability.
