Blogs are about ideas and conversations - sharing ideas and starting conversations with interested, and interesting, people.
Cabot is about the same things; we want to help find new ways to address some of the biggest challenges we face as a society - how we live with environmental uncertainty - and we want to bring together the broadest possible group of people to do that. So although we're based at the University of Bristol, and students and researchers here are our primary constituency, we also feel very strongly about engaging beyond the institution, with business, industry, third sector, public sector and community organisations, as well as interested individuals. We'd be delighted if you wanted to join the conversation.
The blog is a space to freely discuss ideas - nascent research ideas, ideas provoked by current affairs, events, other people's writing. You're welcome to comment on anything, or if you want to post to the blog then let me know and I will add you. If you are interested in staying abreast of events and opportunities, then our mailing lists are the place to go. For the time being (until it's fully automated), send an email to cabot[hyphen]firstname.lastname@example.org telling us whether you want research news and events (weekly; for researchers and collaborators, within and outside the University), or public events (monthly). All public events are also featured in the research news.
I hope we can encourage you to be part of Cabot.
