LIFE to LIFE interactions

Tags : 

On Thursday 12th September a meeting was held in Bangor, North Wales, the first of a series to initiate a collaboration between LIFE Laser Fence and ScuriousLIFE (Sciuriosity – Evolving IAS grey squirrel management techniques in the UK, LIFE14 NAT/UK/000467). At the meeting there was a useful discussion of the details and practicalities of both projects and also the shared interests and potential interactions between the two.

ScuriousLIFE was represented by Dr. Craig Shuttleworth while the participants from LIFE Laser Fence were Dr. Martin Sharp (Project Manager), Dr. Jenny Sneddon (Senior Lecturer in Vertebrate Environmental Physiology) and Dr. Eduardo Cordova-Lopez (Senior Researcher).

Conversations focused shared themes of the projects, such as biodiversity, invasive species and habitats as well as natural and environmentally friendly ways to manage movement of animals considered to be pests or invasive alien species.

It was agreed that there is high potential for interaction and collaboration between the projects and future meetings are planned.

Life Laser Fence at LJMU Faculty of Engineering and Technology Research Week

Tags : 

Research Week at the Faculty of Engineering and Technology (FET) at Liverpool John Moores University celebrates the significant contribution that postgraduate research students (PGRs) make to academic life, allowing students a platform to share their own research and gain valuable feedback. More than 150 PGRs participate in the event and welcome a range of external keynote speakers.

As part of the activities of this year’s Research Week, Some of the many research projects in the faculty were invited to have a stand display and explain their projects. This is a direct response to queries from PGR students who wanted to know a bit more about the many and varied areas of research where the FET is involved and the practical applications of the different areas of expertise.

LIFE Laser Fence was present at this year’s FET Research Week and attracted considerable attention from the research students. They clearly showed an understanding of the needs for systems like these, which can in an environmentally friendly manner deal with the problem of unwanted animals in agricultural settings.

Participation of PGRs also enhances understanding of current post-graduate research activity across the Faculty and promotes inter-faculty communication and research networks, providing students with the opportunity to support like-minded colleagues. The conference develops researching skills crucial to presenting, writing, poster preparation and communicating research to an audience.
