To many October is the month of pumpkin-spiced lattes, cosy jumpers and warm autumn colours. To the few geeks among you (we salute you, friends!) October will always be the month that the first message was sent over -what later became known as – “the internet”.
To us though, this will be the month that we published our first Newsletter, and we are damn proud of this! AtLETS Lab, we are fascinated by the ways in which the advancements in technology and science intersect with the law and challenge conventional legal thinking. We would like to share this passion with you through this Newsletter.
This is a new adventure for us and no doubt the road will be bumpy! Our editor-in-chief, Isabelle de Oliveira has worked hard to make sure that this newsletter together with a cuppa and a biscuit will be something to look forward to on the third Monday of the month. Enjoy our first Newsletter – this first edition is packed with news, exciting readings and job opportunities.
The University of Greenwich’s own Fire Safety Engineering Group featured in The Community Research and Development Information Service (CORDIS) magazine.
Interviewed by the EU magazine, the leader of the FSEG Team, Professor Ed Galea gave an overview of the project, which was finalised in April 2020, including the challenges faced. GEO-SAFE is part of the multidisciplinary international project consisting of 107 researchers and end-users from 20 partners in 6 European countries (Spain, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Switzerland, United Kingdom) and Australia in a wide range of disciplinary fields (mathematics, modelling, fire safety and behavioural psychology, etc). The researchers collaborated across areas of expertise and with end users to understand the planning, logistical and real-time needs for addressing wildfires
The aim of GEO-SAFE is to create a network enabling the two regions to exchange knowledge, ideas and experience, thus boosting the progress of wildfires knowledge and the related development of innovative methods for dealing efficiently with such fires.
It’s Black History Month and for 31 days we celebrate the history, the culture, the significance and the legacy of the African Diaspora movement. In the UK, October highlights the achievements of the people and events that created this black history. The University of Greenwich and it’s Community embraces the spirit and invites you to join a series of events organised by the Centre for Applied Sociology Research and the Greenwich Student Union that showcases the importance of this annual celebration. Tickets to these events can be reserved in advance.
2020 has, so far, been a year marked by events that will live in our memories for generations to come. As we sailor through uncertain waters, we hold on to the past and the present with more conviction, after all, it’s all we have as given. As the Autumn leaves start to fall, announcing the beginning of a new season, we restore hope and embrace the gift of life.
